A linear approximation is close enough.

In a mathematically perfect simulation, it is not linear, but until you get to extreme distance with extreme winds, linear is a perfectly acceptable way to model point of impact shifts. And by the time the effect would be noticeable, you would be shooting "beyond small arms capabilities" anyways.
