      It was a gusty morning. Wind right to left. 22lr @ 100 yards. A full box of 50 rounds. SK standard +.

      Aim point 6 o’clock hold on the 6″ black.

      Very little air movement at table but substantial out at 100,

      I think a 22 at 100 could be an excellent training tool to learn the effects of wind and how to cope. Much less expensive than expelling many center fire rounds at long distance.

      Larry Gibson has mentioned to me on several occasions, that if I really want to learn to play in the wind, 22s at 200 yards is the way to get the feel of it. I have a bias against ammo I can’t reload, but as they say a picture is worth 1000 words. Very interesting!

      I’m curious what the rifle is in the picture. CZ with a Boyde’s stock?

      It would be less expensive to shoot .38 Spl than .22’s I have been eyeing a Ruger M77 in .357/.38. Just cannot justify close to $700 for a plinking gun when I have three lever actions already that shoot the cartridge.

      Oh you mean like this one? It’s not stock. This fine 77/357 was custom built right here at MBT.
      22″ Krieger barrel
      Timney custom trigger
      Boyde’s precision Laminate stock with adjustable comb
      M1A tritium lamp front post / NECG custom rear aperture peep
      Bedded with MilSpec bedding compound.

      Heck of a way to see what the wind is doing. LOL!

      200yds with a .22lr is interesting . .. 300yds gets really interesting, easy enough with no wind but watch those groups open up when it starts to pickup

      I grew up in western KS shooting almost all .22 LR. Continued when I got out of the navy, but used a Ruger stainless single-six with 9.5 inch barrel. You really learn something about doping wind there. Something seldom discussed are the effects of shooting across variances in ground between the shooter and target. Shooting across a deep canyon or across a farm terrace in stiff winds creates some effect vertically.
