A simple experiment is simply shoot at a target (paper is probably best) in a steady side wind
Use the same POA for each shot,
Shoot from 55 Yards to 10 yards in 5 yard increments and see what the result is.
Then do the same thing for a near wind & then a far wind situation from 55 yards.
Measure the wind velocity if you are able, to be replicate the same or at the least very similar conditions,
if you have to do the experiment over a number of days.
