Mis-judging the wind

I,ve been working on my wind estimation at longer ranges lately (500-800yds) and am getting to the point were I can connect on the first shot 85-90% of the time at 500 and 60-65% of the time at 800.
I also notice that when I don't connect on the first shot I almost always seem to under estimate the windage needed. So just out of curiosity how do the rest of you guys do when you're off a little, more often over or under on the windage needed?
