Well it seemed like if wind was from the left corrections from lacking and if the wind was from the right they were excessive with wind varing it was hard to nail down. but to answer yes it could be corrected for on a calm day .
This evening I waited til 6:30 to shoot and it calmed . Was able to print 2 cold bore shots a hour apart at the 8 o'clock 4 " and 7" from the center of the bull on the 20" porta-gong at 1058 yds. I cant seem to get the pic from my phone but since it is in the back of the truck I will photo it in good light tomorrow with my camers and post it . I wanted to take a third shot but light was fading and I wanted all shots to be cold bore.

    Here is the target I wish dark had not caught me so a third shot could have been made.

    Make a light pencil line on the scope tube at the parting line of the ring. This will give you a gauge to adjust from as you shoot it in.

    If after you put the elevation on your group falls to the left of the plumb line, do you rotate the scope clockwise or counterclockwise?
