I have them on my long range rifles but since I got my G7 Rangefinder I haven't bothered with them. The G7 outputs match my cosine indicator/Shooter outputs exactly on angled shots. Great technology and very fast. iMO.

I have looked at the G7 range finder. That has it all. Wow, some day.

I used to use a Leupold rangefinder with TBR feature. I loved that feature, but the rangefinder sucked. I bought a Bushnell 1300 and it is a much better rangefinder. They advertise their ARC like it would function like Leupolds TBR, but the morons only have it actually function that way in bow mode (0-99 yards) so now I am stuck calc-ing for the angle. :(

I'm not aware of any newer rangefinders that don't read the angle, so am unsure why anyone would want to strap extra junk onto their rifle. If you are at ranges short enough not to need a rangefinder the angle you are shooting probably won't be a major factor either.

Not everyone who hunts or shoots uses a hand held rangefinder

Some folks use mil dots in the scope to range find. Following the
formula can range find farther than most hand held models.
For these people the angle cosign indicator makes sense.

Years before the angle cosign indicator was adapted to the
rifle and the hand held range finder with arc became available,
I used a small hand held angle cosign indicator the was used by
the surveyors to find distances on hills. It came in very handy
in field archery tournaments.
