That said, if I had to purchase from Cabela's and had a sub $200 budget, I'd most likely buy this... Link
Bearing in mind that, while I've owned Simmons rifle scopes, I've never owned one of their rangefinders.
Thus, I can not speak for their accuracy or reliability.
The Bushnell and Nikon rangefinders I have owned have been both accurate and reliable.
One of the Bushnell's had a battery drain issue while some users seem to get "lemons" from Nikon.
(If you get a "winner", you're golden. If you get a "lemon", Nikon's customer service seems to be hit or miss.)
Hope any of that helps.

We spent the big bucks and got a lieca and it ranges consistently no matter the day 500 to 1200 yards.
One trick is to shade the front objective or wear a black glove to cut the reflection from your hand down for longer ranges.
