I'm no good at math either, I use a common anglefinder, the ballistic program exbal can be set using 's instead of cozine, cause I'm too broke to buy an ACI.

Re: shooting at a incline?

ok i found a online cosine calculater. and i just typed in from 5-10-15-20 and all the way up to 80deg.. and wrote down the cosine for all of those in my data book. so instted of figuring the sosine out every time you shoot you can just look back to the data...
