Don't know what he's moaning about. At 55yds I'm always 3" off, and I miss it, time after time.
3 inch - if we aren't counting in feet, then it isn't fun

Just a wee zephyr at Anston then ?

Seriously, I was surprised the first time I shot on a 50yd outdoor range, with target boards coloured so that you could see the flight-path of the pellet. Even on a relatively still day at Sywell the deviation was something of an eye-opener. And I had to concentrate hard to put pellets repeatedly into a 4" circle.

When I first started at Emley 3+ years ago, by far the biggest surprise was how much wind can move pellets, even at medium to close range let alone 50+ yards , it's a great feeling though when you nail a target in strong wind .

Sounds like you had it easy today, at Millride saw movement exceed 2 1/2" at 28 yards and more than 6 1/2" at 52 plus lift.

Wind and trajectory make FT.
