The problem with not worrying about it is the extended ranges of 200, 300, 400, 500...

The yardage does not matter, only the slope.

Angles 10 or less do not make any noticeable difference.

For angles greater than 10 degrees:
Multiply the slant range by .97 for a 15 degree angle
.87 for a 30 degree angle
.71 for a 45 degree slope.

For example if you had a 350 yard shot at 45 degrees, you would multiply 350*.71 and get 248.5. You would treat that shot as a 248.5 yard shot. It works the same for up or down hill slopes, you will hit high either way.

I don't quite understand it all,but that is what my ballistics book says.
