    Sig Kilo 1250 6×20.    as of lately   could be 65y,  or 128y or 165 yd or 40 yds.  what ever it wants to say.   is there a recalibration on these.  battery is new and check good.

    if not,  need another dose of recommendations for something in the 100-200 range.   air rifles dont need 600 yds. (at least mine).

    I"ve never heard of a rangefinder being re calibrated. Maybe the solution is as easy as cleaning the lens. Hope you find an answer

    Are the batteries dying?

    Might be just some silly questions from me, but any fog or particulates in the air? Was the unit allowed to have drained batteries in it for some time bc low voltage can be damaging to some chips and memory sectors. Just thinkin outloud…

    I have a Vortex Optics Impact 850 I bought about 2 years ago.  I use it a lot at 100 yd max and it works great for me.  Just looked and the new/replacement model on Amazon is a model 1000 for $199.

    put a NEW  battery in 3.26v.  old battery checked @ 3.02 v.   should have been okay but i m going to find out today.   thanks.

    Doesnt take much of a voltage drop to make a battery weak!  Especially on these high tech range finders. All those fancy electronics take steady power…

    3.02 VDC but with no amperage draw, even a couple of hundred milliamps can drop that well below 3V, teetering on the logic level threshold or simply just not keeping the caps charged, which is what I would bet on given the intermittent operation. Remember to remove the batteries for longer term storage to reduce DC induced corrosion.  Keep us posted!
