Sorry Workd Champ, I come from a windy part if the world and shoot quite often in windy conditions and windage lines do work. Not a mathmatical formulae but good judgement points for reference.
Of course if FT was like Norway we would never need anything more that a cross hair but if you know it's windy and its a full value direct wind that you experienced before you know roughly where to aim. The reference lines help with remembering what is a rough guess that you use the law of probability and % to give you the best chance if hitting the kill.
He who never made a mistake never learned!
He who never missed never shot!
