Default Does this diagram make sense for wind doping?


New to this forum (loving it so far) but have been shooting FT in Canada for a few years now.

A few of us travelled to the US to compete in the US Nationals (shooting in the WFTF division of course )

The match is tomorrow, and the winds are expected to be up to 30MPH. We don't get much of a chance to shoot in the wind at our clubs, they are well sheltered.

Does this diagram make sense? It's for right hand twist barrels:

Not to me it doesn't, but I've always been a bit thick.

I think in theory your diagram is right, but in pratice I would not use it.
Cant say i have experienced the lifting and dropping of pellets by the wind on many occasions.

Use the force for left and right, ahh Jedi say you

I've got a neat little Excel spreadsheet that does the donkey work for you, even tells you how many mildots to hold over. Have you got room in your gunbag to pack a laptop?
