Is that fair to say? Or am I wrong? ? ? ?
I don't think there is a right or wrong in shooting but more of an effective and not quite so effective approach. The statements made on humidity are also published in FM 23-10 HQ Dept of the Army 17 August 1994. But this thread isn't on humidity, so here's what I do for reading the wind:
1. Set up wind flags at the bench, half way to the target, and at the target. I use these
Extra large with HIVIS colors, obviously they don't go up hunting (not because that is ridiculous but because if don't camp where I plan to shoot from they will probably be stolen).
2. Get a wind reading from the Kestral (I use the line it up to point of aim method and use the reading as a full right or left value).
3. Observe nature from the muzzle to the target and decide if I need to make an additional correction (so far I have only corrected for wind at the
and apply this correction.
4. Observe the wind flags I've set up because nature and the wind flags tell 2 very different stories (the flags are super sensitive).
5. Get all dialed in and ready to pull the trigger.
6. Start all over again because the condition has changed.
7. Wait for the same condition because this wind reading is kicking my A$$ right now.
8. Record my hit or miss and try to understand why I hit or missed.
