The Elite 1600 ARC quickly and accurately reads distances from 5 to 1,600 yards, with +/- one-yard accuracy.

Equipped with five modes of operation—standard scan mode, bow, rifle, BullsEye and Brush modes—the Elite 1600 ARC features 7x magnification and fully multi-coated optics. Built with a sturdy, rubber armored housing that's designed to withstand rugged use, the device is 100 percent waterproof and fog proof. Bushnell has taken all-weather performance a step further with the patented RainGuard HD permanent lens coating, an anti-fog and water repellant coating that gives users a clear view in the unclearest of conditions.

The Bushnell Angle Range Compensation (ARC) technology calculates the hold for shooters based on the angle to the target. In addition, it is enhanced with Variable Sight-in Distance (VSITM), allowing shooters to set the holdover/bullet drop information, available in either MOA or inches, and select between 100, 150, 200 and 300 yard sight-in distances for accurate information at the push of a button. VSI also provides users with shot angle information from -90 to +90 degrees.

The unit is equipped with the exclusive Vivid Display Technology, providing an easy to read display, even in low light conditions. Additional features include a twist-up eyecup for convenient and quick adjustments and a +/- diopter setting that allows users to adjust the display setting based on eyesight.

The Elite 1600 ARC Laser Rangefinder includes a storage case, neck strap and cleaning cloth, and is available for a suggested retail price of $499.99.
