    I’m messing around with Strelok and windage but it’s saying opposite of what I’m thinking. Say you have 10 mph wind coming right to left or 3 o’clock. Strelok Calculates the new hold to be one dot to the left of center. Uh wouldn’t one hold one dot into the wind or to the right of center to compensate for a right to left blowing wind? Can anyone comment? What am I doing wrong?

    If you select the first dot to the left of center then you are moving your aiming point up wind and all is well.

    You are holding into the wind if the wind comes from the right and the POI is one dot to the left. Pretend that the POI yellow dot is in the center, then you would have to move the crosshairs one dot into the wind for that yellow dot to be to the left.

    If that makes any sense lol.

    Wind is coming from right so you’d have to move POA right as wind will be pushing pellet left. With aim point one mil-dot to the left, where is the center of your crosshairs???? Hint: it’s to the right…

    The software is supposed to tell you where your new POA is supposed to be. But it is saying aim left with the wind. I tried using the weatherflow Bluetooth wind meter and Strelok and it told me the correct Kentucky windage to use. I’m guessing the arrow indicates wind direction. I.e. Where the wind is going not coming from. Anyway I’ll keep messing with the meter and software.

    When you aim your cross hairs into the wind the appropriate amount of Kentucky windage, which retucule dot is now superimposed upon the centre of your  target ?
    Is it not one on the left of the cross hairs?  That is what folks are writing above. That will point your barrell into the wind and compensate for wind deflection.

    Do it and you will see the sense of the instruction in your post above. … kind regards, Harry in OZ.

    The yellow dot is the point of impact, you do not move the crosshairs towards the yellow dot, you aim according to the reticle, in this case one dot holdover to the wind.

    Harry, thanks for your response. If the wind blows from Right to left at say my zero point of 30 yards then I would place the cross hairs one mil-dot to the right or one reticule dot left of the cross hair center. 

    And with that …..I get it…..man what a GOMER! 

    Thanks guys….I’m going to go and lie down now in the fetal position.

    You’re not alone Drum…. I carried the GOMER stick for a bit when it comes to turret adjustment. Here’s a quick visual that might help remember

    Dart…that’s exactly what I should have seen from the start. Crystal Clear now. Appreciate that.
