    Angle cosine indicator at the LRH Store

    I hunt in the mountains where one of these could be useful, but live in flatter country with limited opportunity to practice steep shots. Is there a chart or ballistics program that can be used to make a chart to fit my rifle? It would make a trip to practice shooting steep angles more profitable if I had a chart to give me an idea where to start.

    Thanks for the help.

    Go here and play around with angles etc. JBM - Calculations - Trajectory

    Shooting at angles is no different than shooting flat after proper calculations and clicks are made. The secret for me is to get a "feel" for how much of an angle I'm shooting.

    Hmmmm, I just clicked on the link and the "my" data for the 338 RUM and Berger Hybrids came up. I wonder what that means??

    When looking for a program make sure it is compatible with a Angle Cosine Indicator because some want the measurement in degrees which would mean you would need a Angle Degree Indicator.
