Looking for resources

After trying to dope for the wind this past Saturday, and shooting a wide 11 inch group at 700 yards, I am finally understanding why so many on this site have talked about doping the wind as being the hard part of long range shooting. Having said that, I was wondering if anyone had any webpages, or links to some good resources for doping wind? I want to do some more research on the matter. Thanks everyone!

Joe

I just watched these this past week. Been learning more about mirage/heat waves and their use in reading wind.



And let's not forget the original... practice, practice, practice

WOW!!! Those videos were awesome! They made my head hurt a bit, but they were very good.

The last part about shooting across a valley made a lot of sense for my practice session this last Sunday. I was shooting across a valley that was pretty much in line with the wind, and would have thereby increased the velocity of the wind, especially during gusts. It made a ton of sense, it is just a lot to think about before you pull the trigger. Thank you so much CB11WYO!!!

Yeah some of it can get pretty intense... alot to remember for sure

I'm definitely not a pro yet myself, maybe someday.

You're welcome!
