Slope-Shot ?

I’m looking for an economical and convenient way to determine angles. I found a product called Slope-Shot by OAT. It cost $25 and can be attached to a range finder. Does anyone have experience with this product, or have any other solution that they are using?

A Silva ranger compass has an inclinometer on it that works well. They are not cheap though unless of course you are lost and then the price you paid is of no concern anymore.

Re: Slope-Shot ?

I prefer the ACI by sniper tools. They are around 100 bucks but are very compact and stay on the rifle. You can also get them engraved with either angle cosine numbers or actual angle in degrees.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
