    I'd use the "standard" 308 Win thing Ian M. once mentione, I believe it's as follows.

    10 mph wind standard.

    100 yards -0- correction
    200 yards -1- MOA correction
    300 yards -2- MOA
    400 yards -3- MOA
    500 yards -4- MOA
    600 yards -5- MOA
    700 yards -6- MOA
    800 yards -7- MOA
    900 yards -8- MOA
    1000 yards -9- MOA

    Should be close enough for you to begin fine tuning to your shooting and rifle. For a 5mph wind use 1/2 these values..

    I will be on the range at 200yrds tomarrow. This info should help lots. Thanks. Been waiting for a windy day to give it a try for basic research.
    And yes, it is 150gr. Sierra HPBT-MK bullets. Just forgot to list that. But tommarrow, I am trying out the 168gr. HPBT-MK. Thanks again, Jeff.

    Wondering if there is a BASIC chart for windage. Say for my .30-06, (MV@2571)using 150gr., scope is 6-24x50 with 1/8" pr click at 100yrds. How many clicks pr 5mph of wind at 200 yards?
    I tried looking in the search, just maybe not with the right words, thinking this has been talked to death. Can anyone help with this? Thanks, Jeff. [​IMG]
