Default Best Rangefinder for around $300

I am looking at buying a rangefinder for the first time. 99% of my hunting is done with my bow, so I don't need one that ranges for miles. I have been looking and hearing about the Leupold with the TBR. Does anyone know if that actually works. And another question. Do regular rangefinders give acurate readings uphill or downhill. I don't know if this TBR is a sales gimic or an actual good thing. Thanks

TBR is certainly real and can have a great effect at longer range rifle shots. I'm not as fimilar with the effects on a bow, although I know it does exist.TBR is a large part of physics, it can't be argued. There is also an easy way to create your own TBR type cheat sheet. If you can tell me how high up yourstand will be from the ground, assuming your in a tree stand, and how far the deer, or other targetwill be from the bottom of the tree, I can calculate a TBR range for you.

And yes, other range finders work fine uphill and down hill, but they will just calculate a straight line distance to the target and they won't give you a ballistics range for uphill or down hill shots. Shots with a steep angle will always require the shooter to aim at a shorter distance than the actual straight line distance.
