I am sure others are aware of this and maybe I am dumb for not finding it out sooner. My sig kilo 5K has the applied ballistics built in which I use for closer shots - when it gets out further I switch to my kestrel. When target shooting (on a relatively flat surface) I always try to verify that my kestrel solution is in line with my rangefinder solution. When shooting steep angles this weekend I noticed it was quite a bit off between the 2, then noticed my buddy was getting a much different range. Long story short, when the rangefinder is in BDX mode that spits out the ballistic solution, it only gives you the LOS range and not the angle adjusted. So if using a dope chart or manually plugging in to a calculator, the rangefinder has to be set up on AMR mode which does not give you a solution. If I want to verify my solution, I would have to range in BDX mode, and then switch to AMR mode to get the angle adjusted range to plug in to a calculator. I know it fairly obviously states that in the owners manual but why wouldn't they have an option to use the angle compensated reading combined with the ballistic solution? Am I overthinking this?
