    Very much so. Lots of things down range you can use to make your wind calls from trees to grass to grain in the field to dust.

    Snow particularly gives you a good read on where wind changes occur between you and the target.

    BTW I like how you have your little guide/reminder for mirage/snow on top of the scope. Under pressure the less one has to think the better.

    Yes, things are improving but I find it significantly easier to use a pistolgrip so looking itno various chassis solutions now. Want to gain access to the product development in AR parts, just need to find a light enough chassis. I'm not going to lug around a heavy hunting rifle.

    Yeah, thanks. I had some learning issues with the mirage angle (see them too seldom to remember them on the fly when needed). I have them on my scope so I see them every time I grab my rifle, I have a velcro patch on my backpack so I see them every time I grab that, and I have them on a credit carc size thingie in my wallet so every time I pay for something I also see them.

    Probably don't need to say it, but after thousands of effortless exposures to mirage angle values they are now firmly embedded and remembered. Simple tricks that make study easy. I have a monkey brain, but things can be hammered in.
