@ Extreme: Funny. I wrote that I can get everything I need for $250.00...and then you offer me yours for $300.00. ;)
@ Yobuck: I am in California, and we have many hills and valleys. Like I mentioned, I will not be shooting over 600-yards...but I have had to take 2 or 3 extra shots sometimes. So, "Yea"...I do miss because of the angles.
I am aware that there are other goodies to help with the angles (cards, phone apps, MildotMaster, slope doper, laser rangefinders with ARC installed, protractors, etc), but it seems that a simple, solid device mounted onto the rifle would be the simplest.
What if your batteries go dead on your phone or rangefinder? What if you drop and damage your rangefinder? What if extreme weather throws-off your electronic device? What if it is not weather-proof...or fails to be weatherproof?
So many things can happen to your electronic devices. But if you have this set-up on your rifle - a pen and paper (or sand and a stick) can get you your corrected range to the target. Nothing "extra" to depend on.
And let me throw out another thought. The above set-up will cost me approximately $250.00. But for a few more shekels I can purchase a good rangefinder with an angle compensator.
So now the questions:
1) Dish out the $250.00 for the ACI with anti-cant device?
2) Purchase some other cheap tool?
3) Just get a dedicated laser rangefinder that has an angle compensator?
Thanks again for those who replied.

PS: I've had a Mildot Master for many years now. Sweet device, but I hate having to pull it out, and doing all the pinching and stuff. And even then, I'm still off a bit if I pinch the paperclip wrong.
