Assuming it was an actual 15 mile an hour crosswind with 290 grain bullet, you could be drifting 4-8 inches depending maybe more. These bullets are big and relatively slow. A 5mph crosswind can move a 200gr bullet 5-8 inches at 200yards.

Recheck zero on a calm day if you can. It will surprise you. 15mph is a lot of wind.
