    While it might not apply to knocking over steel, on paper you still have to dial in specifically for the rifle range you're visiting on the day, as all are different due to orientation and weather peculiarities - but definitely a quick way to get on target, good work.
    Yeah Brett, I totally agree that condition changes happen, and could stuff this about. Personally though, I always zero my sights in nil wind, then use the old "Kentucky Windage" for conditions, as if conditions change during the match, I can adjust with confidence in my kit for the basic setting. This is particularly useful if a crosswind swings by more than 90 degrees in the duration of a double match, for instance. I would also leave my nil wind zero if hunting as well.

    Anyway, it's horses for courses, so if it helps someone else, I'm happy!

    Very clever; you'd best be presenting this idea to the patent office and see if Williams might buy the patent from you.

    The honor will be those who use your post to better their shooting, from now until? I have linked this in two other forums.
