Howdy,

Practice, Practice Practice is really where its at.

At short range none required. Longer range I use my leica rangefinder. Fast & easy.

Re: Do you use an Angle Cosine Indicator (ACI) for uphill/downhill shots?

Here's important information to be cognizant of, regarding Laser Range Finders.

1. Electronics Fail;

2. Batteries Die;

3. Civilian Laser Range Finder's as well as some Military Specific Laser Range Finders do not range well in tall grass, trees, and at distance, rocky terrain;

4. LRF's must be treated carefully as they do not pass the drop test well;

5. Most Civilian LRF's are not to be exposed to freezing temperatures without a heat source attached. This is because the "gate" that the diode is located on can and will warp from the freezing temperatures.

you can answer, YES. Your angle cosine indicator is located in your range finder.

It's on the need list for sure... tired of guess-timating

CB11WYO,

While the ACI's are still a little spendy and the rangefinder combos are subject to a
possible battery failure. I bought a surveyors inclinometer several years ago to read
in degrees the up and down of places I hunted in. Of course you have to have a ballistic chart, range finding device and windage meter to adjust your sight.
Along with hours and hours of practice to become accurate.

With all that being said, probably quicker and cheaper to just buy an ACI.
