Could some kind soul with some spare time and a fancy computer program check my math on the predicted OG on this recipe?

2 lb British pale 2 row
2 lb Victory malt
.5 lb crystal (60)
.25 chocolate
.25 English Brown
1 oz Black Patent
4 lb LME

At 65% efficiency on my mash step into 5 gallons I come out with damn close to 50 OG right on. I'm using points/gallon. Is this close? Thanks.

Thanks for the link greenhornet. Very interesting. I really had to change things to get it to "balance" i.e., more hops, less malt for the brown I had in mind. My math seems to have been wrong for some reason that I don't really understand.
