If I were to use the "Rule of 15s" which if I understand it correctly, is to use the horizontal distance, I would miss spectacularly.

No, the rule of 15s means you use the actual distance. Brian said "shoot it as if horizontal" by which he means ignore the difference in height and use what your scope told you (if rangefinding in FT or bracketing).
