Your best 1,000+ yd. windy day shooting.

Just would like to know what anyone's best 1,000+ yard, windy day, multiple shot groups are. I just shot the best I've actually measured in a while.
338 Edge, 300 gr. Lapua 2,885 fps.
Gusting and swirling wind,from 4- 12 mph. updrafts, downdrafts, the whole shebang.
1,014 yds. 15 shots, 10" horizontal x 5" verticle on 16" steele plate. 5- 3 shot strings.
Spotter helping with wind reading.

Re: Your best 1,000+ yd. windy day shooting.

My best long range group was during an f-class match in an absolute torrent of a rain storm. Shot an X at 800 yards and then for the next two shots, had the range master call out to me "you hit the spotter" for the next two shots. The white spotter dot on the target was 2" in diameter.

Did that with a 308 shooting 175g VLDs.

Re: Your best 1,000+ yd. windy day shooting.

Very nice shooting, 1 moa for 15 shots is pretty good in any condition from field shooting positions.

That said, you ask about windy conditions, that is a relative thing. I was up shooting this weekend. At my shooting position, the wind speed was from 8-12 mph and from 3:00 to 5:00 direction. At the target location, wind was 18-20 mph from a 5:00 direction but also with about a 40 degree updraft.

If you can imagine, this was not an overly windy day here in Montana, in fact it was pretty nice shooting compared to what can be normal here in north central Montana on the east front of the Rockies.

4-12 mph winds would be a relatively CALM day around here!!! LOL

Good Shooting!!
