Re: Question about wimd meters....
After playing with two different models, here's what I prefer...
This gives you a fairly constant wind value to correct for if you're putting the compensation dirrectly into your scope or simply adjusting your hold.
2)Current wind speed.
With a spotter, this can tell you when the current wind speed matches the conditions for which you plugged in your corrections. Shooting by yourself, you can get a feel for the wind by watching the speed and then try to shoot when the wind "feels" the same as the compensation you've entered.
By placing the tripod 4 to 6 feet upwind of your shooting position you get clean, constant readings for the most accurate, average wind speeds and directions. You don't have to pick it up to see if conditions have changed, you simply look over at it.
I want to be able to look straight at the display, regardless of wind direction. Or, positon it so there's no glare from the setting sun on the display if that's the case.
I have the Skywatch Meteos and it fits these criteria wonderfully. It gives the temperature too, which I do plug into the 'ol ballistics program.
Altitude is also a factor and the Meteos doesn't tell me that, but I have other toys that do.
Hope this helps.... Even if it didn't answer your question!
All it takes is One Good Shot!
