Odd DT Swiss spoke calculator rounding.
 
1 Attachment(s)
I'm building up a new set of MTB wheels with 350 straight pull hubs and XM 481 rims and have always used the DT Swiss spoke calculator with great success. This time I'm getting odd rounding suggestions.

FRONT: 303.6 left, 304.7 right
REAR: 304.3 left, 303.6 right

DT Swiss is suggesting these spoke lengths:

FRONT: 303 left, 304 right
REAR: 303 left, 303 right

DT Swiss is rounding everything down, but that left rear number looks off.

I also use the DT spoke calculator. I rarely bother to do then look at their rounded off specs, I do the rounding off myself. Andy

Point taken. I bought 303 and 304 lengths.
