To elaborate on my own method, on the plinking range before a comp you may get the opportunity to feel the wind by shooting on a plate or paper. If my pellets never move more than 1 dot at 45 then it makes sense to me to measure from the opposite side with 1 dot as I can be pretty sure that in similar circumstances to the plinking range it wont take more than that.
I generally try and measure windage allowance from the centre of the kill, but Tench has got me thinking.

Must be better to line up on a fixed point all things being equal that an imagined centre - thats why a BR target has a pip in the middle I assume - other than sorting the men form the boys with the 10X scores etc.

So measuring windage from leward edge of kill makes a lot of sense in a flighty wind but from a known direction.

Think I will be giving it a go!
Kind Regards
