#83 - AP CH3: Wind Uncertainty
00:52:13 | This episode features discussion on Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting, Chapter 3 on Wind Uncertainty. Changes in wind have a large effect on hit probability as range increases or target size decreases; looking at two venerable cartridges as examples – a 308 Winchester and 243 Winchester – Bryan and Francis work through examples and scenarios on understanding, improving and optimizing your wind calls. Great listen for those that want to hit more targets in variable wind conditions!
One significant note to add here guys. When feeling out the wind with a kestral, have the earpro that you’re going to have during the competition on. I made the mistake of getting a real good understanding based on the sound of the wind in my ears, and then realized the hard way that with my earpro on I was blind.
This is a great point! It certainly helps to be as close to “match” or “Hunt” mode as you will be in the field while learning wind cues. Good tip!
