Amount Of Wind Drift

dear technoid

reading your articles for many years.

my question is what will be the influence of cross wind say 30 miles per hour on the point of impact of skeet no 9 (2 mm) shot at 20 yards. initial velocity is high (1350 fps)



Dear Doron,

Nice to hear from you again. I don’t have any figures for 30 mph winds, but I do have some for 10 mph.

It all really makes you wonder where you have to aim in those 100 yard re-entry side events some shoots have.

One thing to remember when considering how you would compensate for this is that it pays to think about how much the wind is moving the target at the same time it is moving the shot.

Best regards,
Bruce Buck
