Roy---if you will spend time to learn the relationships and develop the techniques you will be a much better shooter. Using this helped me win a 1k State Championship for score in 2006 when the winds were gusting between 15 and 30 mph. Actually set a range record that day for closest to the bull. As Speedy will tell you and I am a BIG BELIEVER in this as well ”the wind is your friend” and separates the true riflemen from the wannabes IMHO. When you are taking a shot albeit in the field or on the bench for all of the marbles giving the excuse that the wind was blowing and I did not know how to compensate correctly is no excuse.
Personally I always hope for windy conditions at a match because it gives me an advantage over the others. Do get funny looks as most of the time I am the last one shooting in a relay and most just can’t figure it out. In the field it is much the same---over time you learn to judge tree, grass, mirage movement etc. practice makes perfect in this endeavor. I have traded rifles with my buddies before and out shot them in the wind using a factory rifle to prove the point.
Hope this helps you-----I have the files if you want me to email them. Have some others on vertical stringing that are pretty helpful but Speedy has those already on BR Central.
