angle aquisition

when using the angle aquisition on the shooter app do you use the edge of your phone to lay on the barrel or the back of the phone.

Re: angle aquisition

I would accually lay the phone on its back on the elevation turret. If you lay it on the barrel the taper of your barrel could through your reading off.

Wouldn't a 20, 30, or 40 MOA scope base throw off your method?

Re: angle aquisition

Yes. You are correct it would. I should have added that. I do not use this method I just used my range finder for angle. But if you have a flat base I would go with turrets

Re: angle aquisition

lay it on the reciever if you can. If not, point at the target with the phone beside the gun. Unless you are shooting a very long way, the .5-1* that your out wont make a diffrence. If your shooting over 1k and angles are a problem, invest in a cosign indicator.
