Reading the Wind and Coaching Techniques
As a competition shooter you can control many things, but you cannot control the wind conditions. To excel in any outdoor shooting sport you will need to learn how to compensate for the effects of the wind.
Written by Master Sergeant Jim Owens, his 20+ years of Marine Corps Shooting Team experience will give you the knowledge to read, judge, and adjust for the wind – in any type of rifle competition.
Jim’s book presents a simple system for judging the speed, direction, and value of the wind. You’ll learn to read the mirage, how to accurately read the range flag, estimate wind speed, wind strategies, effects on the bullet, and much more. The coaching techniques section will help your own performance and that of others when shooting in the wind. Also included are 22 sets of wind charts for both Across the Coarse and Long Range. There are 80 wind charts in total.
