Wind angle is as important as strength when deciding where to aim.

But having said that I have also consistently been able to stay in the kill when another rifle had to consistently come out of the kill to keep knocking the same target over in turn. Manufacturers should do more R+D on achieving an higher BC, along with accuracy it is the most important factor of a good rifle. Looking at the majority of rifles available they clearly don't as the basic architecture of many rifles rules out its ability to achieve this.
There were plenty of shots from the side that day. I'm going to try and do an A-B comparison, my mpr is at the same power and likes the same batch of pellets.
