I was making a landing at cxo on runway 32. Winds were out of 280 degrees at 10 KTS with gust. I came in with full flaps; 40 degrees and made all 3 wheels on the runway. I was using xctl for the crosswind. After I touched down I felt the aircraft side load to the right. I was still using full left aileron and full right rudder. The left wing came up and the right wingtip scraped the runway; windmilling the aircraft into the wind and off the left side of the runway. I stopped in the grass approximately 50-100 ft from the runway. I then stopped the engine and found that the propeller was struck.
