B.L.E.'s astute observation:
Quote:
Actually, wind drift is exponential with distance in a constant wind.
Correct.

Another way to grasp this reality is that bullet moves sideways with the wind at the same rate from muzzle to target in a constant crosswind. For each tenth of a second it goes down range it will travel a shorter distance. So, for each tenth of a second it goes down range the more its trajectory curves to the side.
