I know most of you have run so many numbers that this is probably old stuff but it came up recently when I had a conversation with somebody about wind entry values in Exbal.
The guy I was talking to said he always set his Exbal at 1 mph for wind and then if the wind was blowing 5 mph he multiplied by 5 and if it was blowing 10 mph he multiplied by 10 (moved the decimal one point) and so on and so on.
I set mine at 10 mph and do the division or multiplication accordingly for whatever I read the wind at. I did the numbers in Exbal to show him. Everything was exactly the same except one had 1 mph input and the other had 10 mph input for the data.
You can see that if you used 1 mph it says .25 moa from 450 yards out to 1000 yards. Actually it says .25 moa out to 1150 yards. A 10 mph wind would mean, by multiplying by 10, that from 450 yards to 1150 yards you would hold or dial in 2.5 moa.
On the side that has the 10 mph used, you can see that at 450 yards it's 1.25 moa for windage and at 1000 yards it's 3.25 moa for windage and at 1150 yards it's 3.75 moa for windage.
That may not sound like much to some but if you're going to do it then you should be as precise as you can shouldn't you?;)
How do you guys set up your Exbal or other software for wind?
