If the bullet could travel far enough, it would eventually be "sliding" sideways at the same speed as the wind. From that point on, the drift would be linear, more or less, depending on which variables you ignore for simplicities sake.

It wouldn't quite be linear because it would be slowing in the forward direction with a constant sideways slide but it would be a lot closer to linear than it was during the time that the wind was accelerating it.
