As James said I have experienced this and found some pellets when spun fast can display this effect quite dramatically! The 10.3gn JSB heavy in a 15.5" twist barrel rose a little on a left to right wind but dropped a lot on the same wind when shooting the other way (right to left) The wind had to be up into double figures before it produced this effect. The drop was considerably more than the rise too as it has gravity assisting it. The same pellet in a slower 1:19" barrel didnt do this, nor did a lighter pellet in the fast barrel, well not to a noticeable extent.

What pellet and twist rate have you experienced it with Kev?
