    I almost pulled the trigger on a sniper tools Ind. but i'm going to buy the new leica 1600 that has this in it already. So, can you fellas that have the new 1600 tell me if it will give me the cosine reading and have you compared it to your sniper tools device to see how accurate the range device is ??

    Thanks bigbuck

    You can order the sniper tools device in degrees as well, if you don't want to work with cosign, in case you may not been aware of that...

    I think the new rangefinders like the 1600 may make the ACI a bit rarer...

    I would think so too, except for the women LRHs that like to wear three rings on each finger and two ear rings on each nostril of their nose too. :)

    Thanks for the reply jmden . I think shawn suggests going with the cosine . i'm not sure why though.
    It would be great to not have to spend the money on a sniper tools ACI and just apply the $104.00 toward the Leica. i don't think it will be too many years before we see a do it all range finder :)
