Re: how much wind is too much??
Completely depends on a number of factors.
1) Is the wind consistent?
2) What is the distance?
3) Size of kill zone? (elk or antelope?)
4) Cartridge I'm using.
For example, shooting a 338 Allen Mag at 600yds in a 30mph crosswind, the bullet only moves 4.5moa or about 2 feet. If It was a consistent wind, I'd have no problem making the shot.
However, even at 200yds on a small target, if the wind is totally inconsistent, it can be a much tougher decision (especially with a cartridge that is not as ballistically strong).
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
