    SIG KILO 3000 RF Bino's

    We have only had a short test session preparing for the full review. But here is what we have so far. The glass is good and comparable to the SIG ZULU 5's. They ranged trees for us to 2500 yards. They BlueTooth the fire solution to your SIG BDX scope, or to your Kestrel AB for a solution, It is also said they will work with the Garmin ForeTrex 701 but we haven't done that test yet. There are different modes and although we have not tested this yet either, they are suppose to offer an onboard fire solution also to 800 yards. Rifle and load data transfers from a phone app to unit. Best part is the price. They are suppose to sell for around $1200 from dealers and I believe MSRP is about $1500 This is from memory and we have just began testing, sorry if I misquoted anything.

    Beam Divergence is 1.4 MilRad

    I doubt seriously that for about the same money the new X will not make it just another piece of glass.

    The price of the 3000 should be about $1200 and I think the Teripin X is about $1700~$1800

    Beam divergence is square 1.4x1.4 MRAD or 1.4 x .5 MRAD?

    so if these are similar in price to the 2400's, what is the benefit of one over the other?

    Less Items in the field to mess with. You can range as your looking at the animal judging it. Saves a step so to speak.
