Reading the Wind
A few days ago, I set out a new target on my range. I'm now set to shoot at 1,000 yards. The wind has kept me from shooting much, but so far I have been amazed at how much difference the wind makes between 800 and 1,000. Even a light breeze, barely noticeable on my skin moves the bullet as much as two minutes!
I try to take five shot groups when the mirage looks as close as possible to the last shot. But it seems most of groups have 24" of horizontal spread.
Any thoughts or suggestions? Or is this just one of those things where I need to buy a few hundred more bullets and keep shooting until I notice a pattern?
If I can kill that coyote from here, Will you walk out to get him?
