In the world of laser range finders of the type that a hunter would use, what constitutes a _GOOD_ reflective surface at distance?

Please also define a _POORLY_ reflecting surface at distance.

Thank you folks.....Lee in Denver

reflective = sign, painted wall, flat rock.

poorly reflective = anything "furry" or "feathery".


fwiw, most RFs do a very poor job on furry things much past 200 yds

the better technology (Swaro, Zeiss, Leica) will range antelope or coyotes to 1200 yds repeatedly.
