Good shot either way , 27 degrees angle fits better and comes up about a 500 yard shot. Congratulations on a great bear and that great feeling you get when you connect on a shot like that !

I have memorized cosine values in 5 degree increments from 0 to 60 degrees - just another gadget to spend money on - I am not a human computer but like numbers.

Good for you ! It doesn't make any difference where the number comes from.
As long as you have a number to adjust your sight with, and you are satisfied
it will produce the desired results. GO for it.

I bought a surveyors inclinometer to give me the exact angle and degrees and
work out sight setting with known distance. the inclinometer cost $25.00.

But, now I use a range finder out to a 1000 yds and it gives me an angle if
any and it's much quicker. At a cost of 20x as much.

Keep them all in the middle they look prettier there.

That's great, as a young man in college we were suppose to memorize 0, 30, 45,
60 and 90.

Now the question is how well one would do under pressure, with a bunch of
adrenaline rushing all over. Would we still remember those cosines from 0 to 60?

I think the gentleman was explaining a system he is using. It seems to work for him. I did not get the Idea that he was trying to sell anyone on its
merits. I think you answered your own question quite well.

That's one of the reason ARC range finders have become so popular.

Have fun shoot out the middles.

I agree with you!

I was not trying to be excessively direct by saying:

How well can you do under stress and a bunch of adrenaline rushing through your body?

I know it would not work for me but it's great for those that can handle it.
