That's still my take, as I said in #8.
Whatever the "knowns", I like to rule them out- leaving as much shooter error as "the rest" as possible. We all know the wind call is the big booger, but other unknowns like velocity deviations matter too. Even with a big "miss", it helps being able to separate vertical and horizontal spread effects to try to figure out the "why's", and how much of each might have been responsible so that adjustments can be made.
It isn't always easy, but it's a nice feeling to see that steel swing through the scope after you've given thought to what caused the prior shot to miss, and made adjustments. Luck? Sure...I'll take that, too
