I went out today to shoot steel at 1,472 yards. 24"x24"x3/8".
5mph steady wind with gusts to 15mph. Took a few sighters on a rock @1,455. Next 3 shots went 4.5"... Next 3 shots went 1 off target and 2 @ 3" center to center, low right.
Then the wind really picked up and I was missing every shot 6"-8" to the right no matter what I corrected for. Tried waiting it out but no luck. Just kept blowing harder and more eradic. I will save my bullets for a calmer day.
338 Edge, 300 gr. Lapua.
I have some Lehigh 245 gr. solids coming. They will knock 30" of wind off the lapua's. Should help. Hope so.[/IMG]
