Response to "great wind doping will trump mediocre range finding"

You guys who use 50x scopes down play the importance of range finding. When you can range to +/- a foot it may not seem so important, but it is a big factor in hunter class success.

Is wind doping important, you bet, and it usually is the separator of the top 3 or 4 shooters in any match, assuming there is a noticeable wind present (+5mph). You have to range every target at every match. Even in the wind you may not have to hold outside of the kill zone to make the shot. Ranging errors are less forgiving.

The best shooters I know are probably also the best wind dopers, no coincidence.
