that sounds about right I don't think your scope is off. 25 mph is a heavy wind. I don't know the equation to figure out bullet drift but with a 17g bullet it drifts pretty good even with the 2600 velocity.
I live in a very windy area of Montana. The .17 might not be for me after all. Shooting goferz is my main plan. My 10/22 has them plucked off the field from my rest at about 100 yards. I am starting to think I really need a 223 with the vmax bullet. I will have to weigh the noise issue.
My best lucky shot was 174 yards, and hit the gofer in the head. Was I pleased!
I'm just a begginer, any advice helps. 223 is as about as cheap as the .17, and you can actually buy them.
