Re: Sun and Mirage (need explanation/help)

Mirage is an amazing thing to me. I love to sit a rifle in my rest with the cross hairs aimed at the bullseye early in the morning. When you come back 2 hours later and the mirage has picked up, the crosshairs are off target. Its also cool when the mirage is really kicking and you have little gust of wind that clear the air to sit there and watch the crosshairs move up and down or left and right even if the gun is sitting perfectly still.

I have seen the mirage so bad on my friends range that the cross hairs would jump from below the mothball to over the top of it 30 or 40 times in a minute, but the mirage would never boil and the wind flags were hardly moving at all. I couldnt do anything with those conditions. My buddy shot back to back ones in it. When your a newbie and see someone do something like that it makes you realize how much you have to learn.

AJ at 200 yards mirage can definately move the POI more than 1/2 MOA. Mirage can also tell you more about what the wind is doing at your target than most would imagine.
