If you want to try another ballistic software for comparison give "eskimo" a try. Its the only one I use and I have had great success with it.

    I use Eskimo also but find that is much different to my exbal figures.

    That's because you're upside down, down there.

    Ther is an old saying,"A man with 1 watch,will alway's know what time it is,a man with 2 watches will never be sure."The point I am trying to make,is just use one ballistic calculator,and make it work.Working with 2 programs,will only complicate matters.You just have to find the "curve" of your rifle,and tweak the numbers to get everything to match up. If you have Exbal,go to the "trajectory validation" feature,and it should get you alot closer.

    From what I am reading i would be looking hard at the Chronograph and maybe shooting through another to double check your speed , I have a Custom 7mag and a nightforce 5.5-22x50 in NF rings on a 20moa base , I use the 1.5 above bore calculation and have landed very close with all the calculated shots out to 800 , check your pressure settings as well , just a thought , but the velocity if its not bob on will have you all over the shop on actual touch down.
