    Ballistic AE wind input?

    The latest version of Ballistic: Advanced Edition has a new wind input. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1368912283.154104.jpg

    I don't understand the inputs with velocity and upwind values.

    Does anyone have an idea how this is used?

    The upwind is just that (or downwind) to adjust for wind coming up/down off a ridge/valley. Haven't had a look at the other one you asked about though...

    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    Velocity is referring to windspeed (horizontal value) and upwind is the vertical windspeed value (if any)

    Press the power and round thingy button at the bottom together once. It will take a screenshot and put it into your pictures folder.

    I see you can change to simple wind like Shooter uses. The thing is though, in the field hunting, there are no wind flags etc to get that sort of info? Accurately anyway.

    Starting to become more familiar with Shooter anyway. I think I like it better with a more flexible interface for milrad output.
    Is Shooter giving good values? I have yet to hear anyone bagging it.
