    Which software is best. I know they are basically the same, but which one is more versatile in it's use. Does Exbal have the new NP R-1 reticle. I tried to contact Perry Systems, but could not find a phone number. I do know they are somewhere in Texas? Also, who is a good sponser on this site that might sell either or both softwares? I want one for my PC and PPC.

    I will be using a Dell Axim PPC with MW 2003

    They are the same software. The new Exbal does have the NP-R1 reticle.

    You can get the software from either Perry Systems ( ExbalOrderForm ) or from NF at 208.476.9814.

    I've dealt with Perry Systems for years and the service and support is great. You can also email them at gperry@perry-systems.com

    The only section that will not be useful is the reticule analysis. since it is meant for the Nightforce reticules. Trajectory is trajectory no matter the brand of scope.

    With the information provided by the above posters, I contacted Perry-Systems by email and then by phone. He was very helpful in explaining the slight differences between Nightforce and Exbal Software. Based on his explanation I am going to get the Exbal software. It appears I can do a little more with other reticles with Exbal. Exbal also now has all Nightforce reticles to include the NP-R-1.

    Thanks SS7mm and JWP475 for all your help.
