Line of sight vs True horizontal distance

Hey guys. I need help finding a good rangefinder that can reach out and touch something at least 1200 yards away.

The kicker is that I need this RF to give me a true horizontal distance in yards when ranging something up or downhill. I have a bushnell 1600 gforce with ARC but it bugs me that it gives you bullet drop instead of an actual yardage reading. I know about the leupold rx-III but it only ranges animals out to about 700 yards. I need a little more than that!

I know SOMEONE has to have an answer for me. A simple google search didn't help!

Thanks guys

Mike

All that's needed is the shot angle and a decent software.

Leica 1600 and Shooter work well
