How Much wind drift do you think there is in Muzzleloader bullets. Say for example on a 10 MPH and 20 MPH cross wind. The reason I’m asking is that when my buddy sighted in his Muzzleloader he had 3 shots all group 2-3″ Left of Center. This was with about a 8-10MPH crosswind from the right. After Wounding and Not finding a deer ( Not much blood at all and lots of searching after blood stopped ) He decided to re shoot his gun to check to make sure nothing was bumped. This time he had 3 shots all grouped about 3-4″ to the right of Center. This time we had about 15-18 MPH cross wind from the Left. This seems like more wind drift than I would expect in a 270 Grain aerotip bullet leaving the muzzle at near 2,000 FPS.
