In this video I explore the Coriolis Effect and whether or not it matters.
The Coriolis Effect is what causes a POI shift that can sometimes be seen when shooting at extended ranges.
I say “sometimes” because any POI shift observed at extended ranges is more likely to be caused by a poor wind call or a muzzle velocity variation than Coriolis.
However, it is worth taking the time to understand its effect. In the scheme of things, it has a minor effect yet some shooters ALWAYS take Coriolis into account while others choose to IGNORE it.
So…let’s take a look at the Coriolis Effect.
