Windage

Predetermined points of aim sector the target vertically (see fig. 10-6). The tip of the front sight post centered on the edge of the target into the wind is considered one point of aim; the trailing edge of the front sight post held on the edge of the target into the wind is considered two points of aim. The same units of measure are applied off the target for holds of additional points of aim. These points of aim are used to compensate for wind affecting the strike of the round and when there is no time to adjust the rifle's sights, or when a lead is required to engage a moving target (points of aim for moving targets are discussed in paragraph 10007). Table 10-1 provides points of aim for full value winds.
