Will be used with a NXS and a S&B PM11. Thanks>

So far I think I am leaning towards this setup: http://www.defensiveedge.net/products/level%20cap/ACI%20ACD%20MOUNT%2013.htm Anyone have any opinions?

Wish they had this for Seekins Rings.Looks like NF only.

Re: Best Angle Cosine Unit ?

I generally just use the "slope doper", but have an observation on the above ACI units for you. The Badger does the math - angle in degrees on one side, cosine of angle on the other side.

Cheers,

Bill

    I like the Badger Gen2. I keep a slope doper in my bag but the ACI is much faster. Just read the value and multiply it by your dope for the range.

    The Badger does not have angle on one side and cosine on the other. It is cosine value only. I have seen one that has both...Horus I think, and Sniper Tools makes one that is angle and one that is cosine value. The Badgers I have are cosine value only. You don't need the angle anyway if the unit gives you the cosine value.

    i use the ACI , the cosine version with the rail mounting attachment,just fits under my PM11

    I stand corrected - thought it was angle/cosine. It was hard for me to see the numbers on the Triad pictures....

    Thanks,

    I rock the sniper tools ACI and use the new Badger ringcap mount, like it much better than the older gen mounts that go on the rail.

    correct me if I'm wrong but Badger's ACI IS the Sniper tools one with their own mounts, am I wrong with this?

    You could be right....I thought the Sniper Tools was the one I saw that could be ordered angle or cosine value....somebody does their's this way...maybe not Sniper Tools??????

    i think your right in that you can get either way from sniper tools, I was just under the impression that badger didnt produce their own ACI, just the mount, but reading above got me thinkin they do make their own
