    Ballistics and wind drift tables

    Anyone know where I can get some ballistics tables? I especially need wind drift info. I've got the ones from SC, but would like some more for 308. Unless some one can give me a Kaz-proof formula for getting, like 20 MPH from 10 MPH charts. Is it as simple doubling the figures or some thing? Thanks.

    Yep, wind effect is directly proportional to wind velocity. A 20 mph crosswind will move the bullet twice as far as a 10 mph.

    I'm not sure its not as simple as doubling the wind speed. At least with some of my ballistics chart programs, the number is doubled plus a small percentage. Not enough to miss the target at long distances, but certainly enough to drift out of the X-ring.

    if you download Federals interactive catalog you can change the wind values and see the results...Only goes out to 500 m though

    So it really is that simple huh? That just seemed too simple, you know? Thanks.
