Today we got very strong wind in Toronto... And I just tried some shots in the wind and find something interesting....

I can't test out how the wind can affect the accuracy of the pellet but just found out I can't hold the gun stable in the wind... So my gun just pointing different directions in the wind.... And this is how the wind affect my accuracy... lol

Maybe I have to lay down on the gound with sand bags etc to support the gun to eliminate the wind affect on the gun ( not pellet), then see how it affect the pellet....

I'm just north of the GTA, and experiencing the same 100km+ winds.
Shoot a low-power gun (I used a Daisy 101) across the wind, and you can actually see the BB curve.
Must be hell being a bird today...

Wind affects arrows even more. Has a much bigger mass to hit at much slower speeds. Before I broke my shoulder I was always out shooting on days like today. You never know what weather would be like when you show up at a bow event. My pellet guns never leave my house. CHEERS!

If I turn my Kral down to about 600 FPS, the 8.3 curve bad. I need to run it around 800-900 FPS that doesn't effect it much at 20M.

Seems like It's always windy here.
