I would like to get one, but

I would like to get one, but I don't want to break the bank.  Not sure what kind to get though.  For now, i am only comfortable out to 30 yards or so, and I can judge that distance pretty good.

How big is the bank? Cabelas

How big is the bank? Cabelas has the Scout 1000 ARC combo and the Out and Back combo. Scout combo is the 1000 arc with 10x42 binos, a knife and Bone Collector dvd. The Out and Back combo is the 1000 arc, 10x42 binos and Trackback GPS/Digital compass. Plus you get a mail in offer for a 1/4-zip fleece pullover with either offer. And no, I don't work for Cabelas.

What's the max distance it

What's the max distance it will range deer size game? Will it range deer out to 450 yds or so? I have a Swarovski and love it for ranging but I could downgrade to put some money in my pocket.

It will do 600 yrds on deer size game and 1000 on trees and stuff. I like the archery and rifle modes, it pretty slick, archery mode does angle compisation out to 100 yrs
