Nice shooting Brad. What was your point of aim?

Re: .37 MOA @ 1356 yds.

Point of aim was about 3/4 MOA to the right. Elevation was good. On that day the wind was a little shifty, blowing primarily from right to left, and varying in speed by a couple mph. I'm using the G7 BR2 rangefinder and the windage calculation was 2.5 MOA in a 5 mph full value wind. This was the second of two similar groups, and shot in a few minutes of steady breeze that was quartering from behind me.
The wind where I am shooting just kicks my butt. Yesterday the breeze was very shifty, blowing between 1 and 5 mph, first from one side then the other. I could not put together anything resembling a group. Finally shot one at 800 yards with the elk rifle just so I could feel like I had done something.
I have a lot to learn about doping the wind.
