Re: Cosine or degrees which do you prefer?

I gotcha, mine reads both. Since I don't shoot angles much I went the cheap route and got the Slope Doper for $18. But like I stated, the only reason I see needing both is if you are using a program that needs angles.

I have used both but like angle for use with my ballistic calculator. Any more, unless I am using the G7 RF, I just lay my Iphone/Shooter on top of my elevation turret in the angle mode, and the angle is entered and calculated automatically. This has worked superbly for me.

I now use my iphone as well and have the slope doper as backup, as opposed to 5 1/2 years ago when this thread was last posted on.
The G7 range finder would be nice, may get one of the new models eventually. I just wish the ballistic calculator was upgraded (extended in range).

Maybe the post was reignited by design…to see what folks are using now. With LRF’s and iphones capable of this feature, my Nightforce ADI could use a new home!

OK, I'll buy that!

I have an ASLI from Horus Vision on my Burris Veracity atop my .270 AI.
