Another Range Finder Question???

I bought one of the new leupold dna range finders, I can get straight line of sight distance, but to use the angle option I have to pick a ballistic match, well my guns dont match any of them.
What is a good range finder that will give me the true distance to the target taking the angle or slope into account without all the ballistic crap?
Thanks

    dont know if there is one I use a leica its only one part of an entire system though. atmsphirics all need to be entered real time along with angle. good luck

    With Gunwerks G7, available on here, though they give you all the ballistic info you can also get the angle, horizontal distance, temp, and air pressure for every range taken.

    the G7 only gives you ballistic compensation out to 1400 yards.

    I just want one that gives me simple distance to target taking into account the angle, dont care about ballistics, wind, any of that, just a good one for rifle, I can calculate the rest.

    Are you using a ballistic progam for these calculations?
