Furthermore, if the bullet hits a gust of wind at 25 yards and there is dead calm the rest of the way to the target, the bullet will continue on its new path and get further and further away from the original path, just as if it had been deflected by a twig or blade of grass.

If it hits a left gust at 25 yards, and then a right gust at 50 yards, now it will fly roughly parallel to its original path but displaced sideways a little.
