Thanks old spook whilst I’m not up on exact movements and measurements on pellets under wind affected conditions I do hold off in some windy conditions. If you look at the first group for the Walther I was aiming dead on. The wind was about 10 to 15 knots I think and from the right. For the second group with the 177 I held off to the right, I can’t recall how far as it just seems to come naturally. I always seem to hold off further for the lighter 177 cal. And with the last group for the 22 I aimed dead on as winds of that strength don’t seem to effect the trajectory that much.
I also have also read that optically centering your scope will improve your groups at various distances as in some scopes the variance can be significant. I’ve ordered a scope mount that can be adjusted without touching the scope turrets. I’m looking forward to compairing the results.
It’s early morning here and there is no wind at the moment, I’ll give it another go after breaky.
