No comp will give ou the answer. Welcome to the shooting world outside of what models say.

Here is what you need to know. The wind flows over land just like water over land. It is not a flat right to left thing. If the wind hits a berm and goes over it it creates an up draft. If it flows down the other side of the berm it will cause a down draft. In short it all dpeends on when your bullet crosses the wind. Some of it is luck and some is just waiting until the weird stuff stops and shoot in the average.

If you shoot some high level events, on NRA range you will see as conditions start to change the better shooters will normally hold up until the wind settles. Guys just banging away miss this and get more up and don shots than the guys who watch and wait.
