I know what you mean. A few weeks ago the wind was blowing probably 20mph and I was shooting 100-150 yds. and it was pushing that little bullet around 2 ft. Definately not a high wind round. When the wind starts blowing like that I go for the Remington 222.

I was shooting a little uphill into a 20 mph wind at 65 yds and the point of impact was about 8 inches higher.
