My rifle is zeroed at 100 yds under perfect conditions. It is a 6 BR custom job by Britt. I set my scope at 6 MOA for 400 yds, 9 for 500 yds. My hits on the plates were close to center. My point of aim was dead center for the record fire. The wind was rather brisk from our right, but most of my hits were right of center. That does not seem reasonable to me, but at least I had good groups that were close to center. Any ideas about why the bullets seemed to move against rather than with the wind?
