Ah, mirage will vary at different distances. Mirage at the target will seldome match the wind at the rifle. Going off focus at the target to read mirage at that distance is easiest with a scope or spotter. Not the naked eye. Are you gving advice for 1000 plus yards?
This is the extreme long range forum, past 1000 yards, might want to read the criteria of this forum.
