“RIANOV is an awesome product... I'd recommend it to anyone!”
Winter in Wisconsin is no walk on the beach for long range shooting expert Ted Puente, or anyone else for that matter, but Puente went out in the cold winter weather, with 30 MPH+ January winds coming off of Lake Michigan to test the RIANOV™ Optical Ranging Device & Ballistics Calculator. “It was cold and windy, but I had put off the testing two times because of the weather. This day, we were going out no matter what! It was time to test the RIANOV™, and we were going”, commented Puente.
After evaluating the full feature set of RIANOV™, including the Press-to-Range™ technology which allows the shooter to determine the range to their intended target with the push of a button and aiming of their rifle, Puente said, “It's an awesome product... I'd recommend it to anyone!”
After completing the evaluation and reflecting on the benefits of the RIANOV™ over other ranging technologies, Puente said, “Having the ability to range your target without emitting a laser and telling your subject where you are is an advantage in any tactical situation, and using the RIANOV™ couldn't be any simpler. The ranging is super accurate and the ballistic solutions are fast and right on the money, every time.”
