Windage Adjustments

After identifying wind direction, wind classification, and wind velocity, windage adjustments needed to enable the bullet to strike the target are estimated in the following ways:

Observation Method. Using the windage chart provided in figure 8-4, match the wind velocity, wind direction, and range to the target to the information in the chart to estimate the correct number of clicks to apply to the windage knob.

Flag Method. Using the windage chart provided in figure 8-5, match the wind velocity, wind direction, and range to the target to the information in the chart to determine the correct number of clicks to apply to the windage knob.

Once the number of windage clicks is determined, turn the windage knob causing the rear sight aperture to move into the direction of the wind. (See chapter 9.)
