Re: Angle Cosine Indicators still needed?

I had a cosine indicator mounted on my rifle before I had purchased a RF with the feature built in. I didnt bother to remove it, but haven't used it since. With the capability of a cosine angle included in my Shooter/iPhone as a back to my RF, I woulnt bother adding one to a new rig. IMO.

Well, if any of you boys with those fancy do everything rangefinders want to give up your angle cosine indicator and mount (picatinny or 30mm), I'd be happy if you'd donate it to this old school shooter!! Just drop me an email and I'll pay shipping.

Re: Angle Cosine Indicators still needed?

You are setting up for the trophy of a lifetime and seconds count. The batteries died on your rangefinder. You know the approximate range because being smart you already ranged some rocks and other items in the area but it's a steep angle.

Would having a non electronic means for calculating the shot angle and range compensation be a good plan?

Yes.

I'm a believer in belt braces and piece of string so I retain my Cosine indicator.
