Vortex Impact 850 Laser Rangefinder

(15 customer reviews)


  • The Impact Rangefinder features a non-illuminated display and highly intuitive menu in a compact and lightweight package. Added magnification brings targets in for a closer look and more accurate ranging.
  • The primary HCD mode displays an angle compensated distance that is ideal for the majority of hunters and shooters. An advanced LOS mode provides the option to calculate long distance, high angle shots with increased precision.
  • A scan feature gives continuous range readings to pan across a landscape or track a moving target. All modes can be set to read in yards or meters.
  • The Impact runs on a common CR2 battery and the battery life indicator is always visible in the display.
  • Fully multi-coated optics enhance light transmission in low light settings. Waterproof and shockproof performance keep you in the hunt no matter what the conditions.



Simply put, with the high-performing Impact 850 and its economical price tag, you don’t have an excuse to head afield without a laser rangefinder.

Accurately ranges reflective targets to 850 yards, providing critical distance readings hunters and shooters can rely on. Range targets down to 10 yards when things get up close and personal. 6X magnification brings subjects in for a closer look and more accurate ranging.

Fully multi-coated optics enhance light transmission for optimal performance in low-light settings. Provides angle-compensated HCD (Horizontal Component Distance) and LOS (Line of Sight) readings to match user preference. Can be set to read in yards or meters.

The black LCD display boldly stands off against subjects during the moment of truth – and a fast readout ensures you get the range in time to capitalize on the opportunity.

    Good size and easy to use. But I was using it beside a friend of mines, halo 450, that he payed 100 dollars for at Walmart. And it was ranging out to 300 yards and 400 yards and the vortex would not pick up that far. Although it says it will range a non reflective target out to 400 yards!

    Works good, but the display can be really hard to read. I would definitely spring for the one with an illuminated display if I could do it over. Even during daylight it can be hard to read the yardage without REALLY focusing on it

    This is the first rangefinder I’ve ever used that actually can range the distance it claims. Others from Bushnell, Halo, and more are often listed as “1000 yards”, but struggle to get more than half that. I can routinely hit things at 6 and 7 hundred yards with this, and I haven’t even started my first season with it. The more Vortex optics I use, the more I’ve become a believer.

    Used this several times for competition. Works very well, and the controls are nice and simple. Great product from Vortex.

    Works like a charm, intuitive and the only downside is the battery (CR2) is not very common in stores but available on amazon! And it comes with one to start with!

    Purchased to sight in bow pins at exact yardages. Doesn’t have a bunch of BS that you don’t need that will only mess you up. It is small yet not too small and all you do is point and shoot to get yardages. Text is clear to read and seems pretty resilient. Good buy from a quality brand.

    Great rangefinder at an excellent price point, clear display, lightweight, small and great features . Highly recommended. You can’t go wrong when you but Vortex. Excellent warranty and customer service.


  11. Glen Pomeroy

    Seems like an excellent range finder with the exception that it can be hard to keep on target because of the magnification. To get accurate readings you may need to use a support to steady the range finder, especially at longer distances. Very clear and easily adjustable focus, easy to read with cross hair sights. Very light and compact.

    It was such a great Christmas morning my dad opening his “vortex range finder” only to pull out a 20$ pair of bushnell binoculars. Far from impressed. .y dad was so excited to see he got it only to see the wrong product in the box. Good job guys.


  14. Amazon Customer

    I hunt with crossbow,black powder and rifle for deer. This range finder is crystal clear and accurate. Quality product and with 6x magnification i leave my binos in camp. I have ranged out to 330 yards only but would never go without it.
