I won't argue with that , But the wind drift that I posted were based on my loads and as we
all know these will vary with velocity and bullet weight. I have wind drift for all of my loads
at 10,20 and 30MPH at 90o to the bore. and have tested to 20 MPH and based on that
calculated the 30MPH wind for the drift.
And as I stated .I don't recomend shooting anything in a 30 MPH cross wind unless it is a very
large Magnum or maby a 50 BMG.
The main thing is to test your load in real world conditions to be sure.
