Saw this on accurate shooters bulletin. Worth the time to read and copy the chart at the end of the article. South Texas Marksmanship Training Center - Reading Mirage

Thank you for posting that information! I have been looking high and low for good info on reading and doping mirage. This is by far the most comprehensive information I have seen. I bookmarked it in my favorites.

No problem! I really liked how they split it up into categories and gave values for the different combinations.

Yes, the level of detail contained in the article about reading mirage has me feeling excited and motivated about logging some trigger time and really working on my mirage/wind reading skills.

I am so anxious to get out and try this stuff. Sadly, I will have to wait another couple of months before I will have the opportunity.
