Default Interesting!

The question arose from another thread I started - 100 yard Target Airgun. Target photos here.

I showed the results of 100 yards test to the coach of my shooting club, he asked me why or how the POI's were horizontal rather than oblique & quoted the Magnus Effect to me.
The wind was quite strong that day.

I had heard of the effect before but had no experience of it with airguns.
There is nothing impossible to those who will try!
