    Coldbore 1.0 from Patagonia Ballistics allows english or metric units.

    In metric units, input and output are:

    Velocity in . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . meters/sec
    Drop, Path, Wind Drift, Spin Drift, and Coriolis in cm
    Turret click setting in . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .mrad
    Sight Height and Zero Height in . . . . . . . . . . . cm
    Zero Range in . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .meters
    Altitude in . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . meters
    Temperature in . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .celsius

    I suspect other ballistic programs allow something similar, but this is the only ballistics calculator I use and am familiar with.

    Swarovski optik's website has a ballistic program that can be set all metric.

    I use Ballistic on my iPhone. It will output either units. Ballistic now has a target analysis feature that calculates group size stats from an iPhone picture of the target - very cool.
