    Butch

    I have two sets of military bigeye glasses that once the tripod is set level by the built in bubble, it will give you the angles verticly and horizontal.

    You were looking into a Russian laser at my place 2 or 3 weeks ago that will do the same thing.

    Secret #2 for the day.

    Anther good reason to have a Russian Laser, don't you think????

    There is a simple little protractor device for doing angles called a Slope Doper, available from:
    www.ustacticalsupply.com or call 541-928-8645

    Not sure if that is what you had in mind, might be.

    The best tool I have tried and still use is the Cosine Indicator.

    It attaches to the tube of your scope and you read the cosine of the incline angle to the target without having to move your eye away from the scope. You then multiply the cosine, which is a decimal, times the straight-line distance to get the effective distance for figuring drop. Very, very simple.
