It does make sense that with a no wind hold the bullet would drift right (and low) with a right hand twist so I could understand a different hold when dealing with a 90* or a 270* wind. I just have a hard time believing it would be as great as what it is telling me.
That does seem excessive. The numbers I've seen generated from Exbal suggest only a 3" effect at 1000 yds due to Coriolis alone. Spin Drift (as near as I've been able to gather) could perhaps be 3 times that amount in some cases.?.........Still, we're only talking about maybe 12" difference at 1000 yds, not 19".
Every app that I've personally looked at also suggests that a 10 mph wind doubles the effect of a 5 mph wind. Hmmmn.....??
