exbal and spindrift

Does exbal account for spin drift? If I tell the program I have a zero wind condition, will it still give me a windage correction for that distance?

This is kind of a piggyback to NONYA's post.

    No, at least not on the Nightforce exbal aka Perry Systems.

    Are there any programs out there that do? How does one compensate for there shots when it becomes a factor. I don't know but I would imagine it becomes a factor at distances as close as 6-700 yards?

    Really.

    You can read the wind *that* good, to be able to tell that the extra... what, half minute? was due to spin drift, not your wind call being a little 'off'?

    You're good

    When the tiny amounnt of wind that does exist on occasion is blowing the OPPOSITE direction that the bullet is drifting it doesnt take a genius to figure out something else is effecting the bullets path.

    FFS does account for spin drift.
    Exbal does it as well but you have to enter the value manually at your max. shooting distance.
    The software then calculates the spin drift at all other distances
