On all of my rifles.
I give S**t to my hunting partner every time for not using one.
Some people never learn....

The ACI's look slick and are certainly a good idea. But I'm cheap too. Even cheaper. My angle finder was about $7.

I intend to own a Leica CRF 1600 soon. In addition to the range, it will provide the temperature, station pressure, and inclined or declined angle for my ballistics program.

of course just having the tool on the rifle doesn't mean much if you don't know how to use it. one should practice from elevated positions or at elevated targets at distance, and a proper data book with proper dope and a calculator to make an educated adjustment is just as crucial, and goes hand in hand with the ACI.

I always bought them in the past, but with the new android shooter program it is built in. I think I am done purchasing them forever! This program has been extremely accurate, escpecially now that my kestrel 4000 bluetooths all the info to it.

Glad to hear you like the shooter program. I just got it too. Please let us know how it works for you and to what distances and conditions you have used it. I posted in Bryans thread and would love to see how this is working for others.

New ballistics program for Android phones

Thanks!
Jeff
