Leica 2000-b range finder

I'm looking to purchase the leica 2000 b range finder but want to check on whether it has setting to compensate for horizontal angles or if the EHR just means it shows the line of sight distance & the angle degrees?
I originally owned the leica 1200 but as I started stretching out longer range I found I needed a range finder with automatic angle compensator as well as bit more distance, so I bought the Sig kilo 2000.
Now the kilo 2000 is great in having that (AMR) angle compensation feature but it's a lot harder to pin point the target at longer ranges meaning u need to stabilize the unit more so otherwise picking up a reading proves difficult. The leica seemed to b much quicker getting 1st time readings at distance with much less fluffing around.
I like the Sigs AMR (angle compensating) feature but prefer the benefits of the leica quality.
If someone out there has good experience with the leica 2000b & can answer my question I will be most grateful & more than likely to go ahead & purchase 1.
I'm not interested in the 2000b's ballistics feature as I use strelok & print out on rifle stock, just want quick reliable automatic angle compensation.
Cheers

Bought one a while ago and the EHR gives the compensated "horizontal" range (ie not line of sight). Good to use with a program as you can set to give click values or Metric/imp holdover values.

Great thanks.
What range does the horizontal compensator work to on animals etc? My sig when held stable reads angle compensated distance to approx 600y in average conditions & further on a good day but struggles a bit anytime over 1000y.

Mine's actually the 2700B sorry, just checked that. I'd have to confirm through the manual but I think 800m. Have ranged 1.7km or so on a sunny day at a barn and surrounding trees.

I ended up getting the 2700-b. Man what a great piece of equipment!
I'm using the sd card feature with the custom ballistics of my rifle for dialing clicks all the way out to 850y if need be
Love it  Cheesy
