A full length sensor from muzzle to target to correlate and analyze  all conditions should do the trick  Roll Eyes


Done that!

Well now, that there picture, if it is actually your range, is helpful....kinda.
Shooting over bare dirt or mixed stone/ gravel is a nightmare.... I hate it.
I guarantee you, if that is the case you are dealing with not only seen and unseen mirage, but several layers of different temperature air layers from muzzle to target.
One of the venues that I shoot has patches of stone in front of 2-3 benches. If you draw those benches, particularly in the afternoon when the ground is really warming......you're toast, I don't care how good you are, and you can't see it.

Yep, that's the Modesto Rifle Club.  The range layout causes crazy-making shifting, swirling, and looping wind.

If you look closely at the shadow cast by the flags, you will see an inflection point at about 35-40 yards. And, this was a fairly calm day.
