Need Ballistic software for PPC

Just got my dream rifle and a sweet deal on a pocket PC, but I cant find a single ballistic software program for pocket PC. Nightforce/Exbal has been discontinued.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

When did Perry stop making Exbal? This is the first I've heard of this.

No idea. It may just be for the pocket PC edition. Ive had it on back order for months and just got a reply saying that nightforce has discontinued this product and it is no longer available. I also went to perry homepage and tried to order it directly, but there was no software of any kind available for order and all merchants had no available stock. Ive searched every available avenue with no success.

I am also wanting exbal for a friend. There are like 3 very low end excel spreadsheets that do work for pocket pc. BallCalc is one. I'm at work and don't have access o my favs or my ppc. I think I got it from the sourceforge.

As far as ballistic calculators go I highly recommend the JBM ballistics Advanced for iPhone. Not sure if its available for android. It has everything. Spin drift and correollis effect. This app is top notch.

I'm also looking for ballistic software for my Dell Axim X50 pocket PC. I tried Perry and got the same result..... not available! JBM is only providing product for smartphones according to their website. I need to have the basics (to calculate drift and drop out to 1000 yds. along with enough "poop" to ring the gong in BPCR shoots.

Any ideas??

Peepsight, I highly recommend getting an iPhone.

I'm not sure JBM if is available on Android. If it, is either device will work.

JBM is only $20. Exbal and nightforce were like $100 and no one wants to part with their copy for $20.

I have JBM and it accounts for Spin Drift and Corilolis Effect.

It also pulls atmospheric data from the nearest NOAA station and if you touch your barrel with the iPhone it tells you and accounts for your angle up/down and compass heading for Coriollis.

Ryan, what is your "Dream Rifle"? Just curious...
