I need to sight in a .22, .243 and a .223. My shots will be around 50 yards in an open field shooting into a large mound of dirt. The wind is so gusty right now. Is it a worthless cause, or no effect at 50 yards?

I would say you could get them very close today. Might just gave to do a little fine tuning another day.

Try to play with the wind shoot when it is at its lowest. It will bother the 22 more than the others at 50yrs. I have shot P-Dogs in 40mh winds past 600yrds playing with the wind.

SEC is right. You should be able to get it close but may take some fine tuning later.

The price and availability of ammo being what it is I would wait for a less windy day.
