Does this diagram make sense for wind doping?

    Gents,

    New to this forum (loving it so far) but have been shooting FT in Canada for a few years now.

    A few of us travelled to the US to compete in the US Nationals (shooting in the WFTF division of course :))

    The match is tomorrow, and the winds are expected to be up to 30MPH. We don't get much of a chance to shoot in the wind at our clubs, they are well sheltered.

    Does this diagram make sense? It's for right hand twist barrels:

    Not to me it doesn't, but I've always been a bit thick.

    I think in theory your diagram is right, but in pratice I would not use it.
    Cant say i have experienced the lifting and dropping of pellets by the wind on many occasions.

    Use the force for left and right, ahh Jedi say you:D

    I've got a neat little Excel spreadsheet that does the donkey work for you, even tells you how many mildots to hold over. Have you got room in your gunbag to pack a laptop? :)
