Headwind effect at 200- 300yds.?
Hello, Just got back from the range shooting my 223VS, 24grs. Benchmark and 55VMAX produced a 4 shot group of 5/16" with a flier about an inch lower @200yds., this happened with just about every group I tried, except for 24.3grs. Benchmark, 55VM, noticed a slight(3-5mph headwind) at times, I was using one windflag tacked on my board which was pretty still during most of the shooting, 300yds. produced even more vertical stringing with the 53MKs I was testing,(10 Shot groups) question is, Is the slight headwind pushing some of the bullets down or up? Or, is it just the nature of the beast when shooting a 223 at 2-300yds. Jay
