Re: Question for S1
Have you guys read the "Wind Probe" article in Dec. Precision Shooting on crosswind components and using a wind component chart?
In this chart the 10 mph at 10:30 wind component is 7.5 mph not 5 mph as most believe. Gene Beggs contention is the crosswind component has a quicker change in the 10:30 to 12:00 o'clock range than the same range at 9:00 to 10:30 does.
The CWC at 10 o'clock is 8.6 mph vs an 11 o'clocks 5 mph value.
In other words a +- 30 degree angle wind change that is comming from 9 or 3 o'clock than 12 or 6 o'clock has little effect but a +- 30 degree angle change at 6 or 12 o'clock is huge and also is switching to top that off.
A 1.3 mph vs. a 10 mph change! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] Much easier to group well in direction changes that are happening closer to 3 or 9 than 6 or 12 for sure.
I'll post a pic of the chart after I scan it in. One could convert the angle into a multiple to get the true full value wind one should correct for in the field for quick use too.
