Great Learning Tool

I was out on the range yesterday trying to dope the wind with a .22 for the first time. Going at it blind was tough. Using this simulation will help me understand wind drift and I expect to do better on my next trip to the range.

its awsome for helping the learning curve. I have started shooting at 200yds (just for fun) and even with a 54" holdover I can hit the swinging plastic bottles occasionaly. I am always close. oh those bottles are 16 and 20 oz size not 2litre.

For sure......249 21X w/.25 settings as originally downloaded.

The suggestion of a freeze frame would sure be nice for analyzing. This would be a super learning tool taken to the top level. Can you do it w/o slaving days over a hot keyboard????

Fun!

Just downladed it and played it for the first time...242-4X. Not bad considering I wasnt actually trying to compensate for conditions...just put the cross hairs in the center =)

I can see this as a good tool to learn how to adapt for conditions and better understand the effects of those conditions.

Edit: Attempting to interpret the factors, my second try was 243-8X

Guys I guess I'm just plain stupid or an extremely slow learner....when the wind is random all 3 flags are pointing in different directions. Which flag is dominant?


Maybe someone could help out an old 68 year old and give a tutorial on the 3 flags?

I just tried the game, found it interesting and I don't know if this is right or not but I figured the last two flags were the dominant ones? I tried to take my reading from between those two flags and ended up shooting a 247-7x with a 3 to 4 - 9 O'clock Random Wind. When the middle flag went wacky I then relied on the last flag closest to the target.

In any event this is fun and I surely do express my thanks for allowing us this opportunity to have a go at this.

I shot the USBR target by the way.

The game is a bit addicting. Any idea of why the program crashes when I try to change the settings. Actually, whether I make changes or not, when I save out of the set up screen the program crashes and I get a runtime error. I'm running Vista. I'll try it on the laptop and see what happens. Regardless it's fun.

The program did install to the root directory so I don't think that's the problem. I may try to re-install it but either way it's a fine game. It works fine on my laptop running XP. FYI, this was in no way a complaint. I appeciate the hard work that you must've put in to this program and appreciate that your sharing it with the rest of us.
