Same speed and G7 .490 drag and 1.20 stability = 43.8 and 1.5 with all bells on.
Yes, but that 120 stability is way off from what LB calculates it at 1.93. Reminds me of a quote from the late great Jerry Clower, " We are educated beyond our intelligence"
Oh, no doubt one could tune it in. But I have decided I don't choose to use " All the Bells and Whistles
" I may be simple, but I simply like Exbal better. I feel the Coriolis and having to carry a compass and do all the extra, paging ,tabs and wait is not worth it to me. So far it does not have my trust. Trust has to be earned, I shoot alot and it has not earned it.
What I need to be proficent on the first shot is this. A good range distance and data for a good come up. Then exbal can give me that, FAST and Simple! Then I need to read wind correctly, last but not least I simply need to know what the rifle does for SD. I know now that at 1562 yards I need 1.5 moa. I feel I can simply remember the SD. That is how I have done it in the past and I am happy with the past results.
The main thing here is I feel I am harnessing the new found accuracy of the Berger Hybrid. This I feel will help me be better and more precise on the first shot.
LB is awesome for home time figuring, computer scenario's and playing with numbers. I will probably keep using it on occassion when shooting rocks or targets to see if it can change my mind. But so far, if I was in a hunting situation and needed fast data for the big bull at 1000 yards. It would be Exbal all the way to the freezer.
Just my simple opinion.
