One of the best videos I've seen on wind, and shooting in it

Watch on youtube.com

This is one of the best videos I've seen on how to judge wind and compensate for it in the field. The formula for calculating is simple and effective. Great info on how to see the wind at different ranges between you target and firing position.

U.S. military snipers have a similar 'cheat' for estimating wind deflection. Of course they were all shooting M118LR 7.62 rounds.

General equations are great to get in the ballpark... especially if using a pretty standard round. Nothing can replace experience, or a good ballistic calculator though. :thumbup:
