Exbal Features:

Best in class for ease of use.

Option to output to Excel spreadsheet for custom reporting, analysis, and graphics.

Ballistic coefficient database for most bullet manufacturers.

Option to analyze ballistic reticles (multiple cross-hairs).

Flexible choices: yards or meters, 1/8th to 1 MOA or Mil Dot sight adjustments, maximum range of 2000 yards/meters.

Calculates effects of wind, altitude to 15000 ft, atmospheric conditions, and angle of incline.

Calculates MOA adjustments and Point Blank Range.

Calculates the effect of sighting in at one altitude and shooting at another.

Exbal is for long distance shooters: tactical, military, law enforcement, varmint hunters, and target shooters, It accurately determines where your bullet will go in relation to line of sight. It performs rigorous three dimensional motion equation calculations that account for air resistance, gravity, and wind drift.

Exbal can utilize multiple ballistic coefficients needed to characterize high efficiency target and boat-tail bullets such as the Sierra MatchKing.

You can specify one set of atmospheric conditions for sight in, and another set for a different range or hunting location.

Exbal can analyze scopes with ballistic reticles using your actual bullet and muzzle velocity,
Exbal does not require a lot of memory or disk space. It can be loaded on a laptop computer to take to the match with you.

Exbal will calculate and display the results for immediate access in the scrolling window at the bottom left of the display.  Click on the image at left to view the Exbal main screen.

To use Exbal key-in a description, bullet weight (grains), muzzle velocity (fps), sight-in distance  (yards), and ballistic coefficient. Optional input parameters are sight height above bore (inches), altitude (feet), temperature (degrees F), percent of relative humidity, and pressure at altitude (in. Hg) or pressure at sea level (in Hg).
