Vortex Razor HD 4000 Laser Rangefinder LRF250: First Impression

Razor-HD-4000

Laser rangefinders are one of the fastest evolving electro-optics products in the shooting industry. Just a decade back, the laser rangefinders with the capability of 3000+ yard performance were restricted to military use only. Even those products with 1,200 yards performance came with a hefty price tag. In 2019, thanks to Vortex Optics, you can get a 4000 yards capability laser rangefinder within a street price of US$500.

Vortex Optics has released a new laser rangefinder – Vortex Razor HD 4000. This single unit electro-optics provides you a compact 7x monocular along with robust rangefinding capability up to 4,000 yards. Though it comes with the MSRP of US$729.99, the street price is US$499.99. Vortex Razor HD 4000 Laser Rangefinder LRF250 has perfectly filled the void between the premium Vortex Fury HD 5000 Rangefinding Binocular and extremely economical Ranger LRF 1800 Monocular.

  • The new Vortex Razor HD 4000 Laser Rangefinder comes with primary HCD (Horizontal Component Distance) range mode. It is an exceptionally helpful tool for most of the shooters because it provides them with a display that is simple and quick to read. HCD range mode provides key angle compensated range information.
  • Vortex LRF250 has also incorporated this rangefinder with LOS (Line of Sight) range mode and scan feature.
  • One of the most useful features that one can miss easily is the 1/4×20 female threading that is located below the device. It helps in easily integrating with a tripod.
  • The Vortex Optics engineers have ensured that battery can be swapped easily, especially when you are wearing gloves or don’t have a multi-tool. That’s why they have made it sure that the battery cap comes with a tab, which flips out easily. In fact, it can be used easily for unscrewing the cap.
