Nice gun range. Is this yours?
A range finder is great outdoors in the hunting or plinking world, where ranges are not set.
I know you mentioned range finders in the context of HFT, but I bought mine for back yard pest control. Have a number of trees at various distances and I wanted to make sure I knew exactly how far each was from my outside deck rail, where I hunt/pest from typically.
.... from there you could mark the SF wheel at any given distance to actual hold over value ( eliminating an elevation correction dope chart ) or use letters such a A=10 B=11 C=12 etc ... Just so what you view and determine as the distance matches your hold correction, distance is irreverent.
