This is wrong, and so are notions of high velocity trumping BC.
Wind drift comes down to Time Lag, and distances wind drift deviations(resulting from time lag) are applied.
The more a bullet SLOWS(decays in velocity) the greater wind influences it's flight.
That slowing rate is tied to BC.
The only time higher velocity 'seems' to reduce wind drift(as calculated), is when BC rises with velocity.
But if your drag curve matches your bullet, BC does not rise with velocity(and drag still does).
Lighter/lower BC bullets slow down at a higher rate at any velocity, and highest near the muzzle. This is one reason near wind matters most.
So provided BCs are valid at velocity, lower BC bullets ALWAYS drift more with a given wind than higher BC bullets, regardless of velocities.
