There is a write up at this site: www.snipertools.com/aci.htm

I have one but haven't gotten to use it on any really steep angles yet. The device mounts to your scope and gives you an angle cosine indication. You multiply the ranged distance by the correction factor displayed on the device. Example: ranged 1000 yards times .90 on device then you turn up the number of clicks for 900 yards. So yes it takes less clicks for shooting up or down hill.
