ONALASKA, Wis. –-( Whether it's a stiff breeze on a 300+ yard shot or a howling gale on a 75 yarder, wind drift can be a real shot spoiler.

Caliber, bullet weight, distance and wind speed all combine to determine bullet impact. Some scope reticles, like the Weaver® EBX™ feature wind drift marks to help shooters decide where to hold on windy days.

If you hunt in windy country, practice in wind and make sure you understand how wind affects your bullet flight
