Altitude & Temperature Effects on a Bullet?
I'm a Big Game hunter with a 30-06 and was wondering how much higher a bullet will shoot in higher altitude climates.
I normally sight the 30-06 with 165-gr. bullets in for 200 yards at 4,500 feet above sea level in Utah. This equates to 1.9" high at 100.
When I go hunting in the mountains, the altitude is about 8,000 feet, but a lot colder at 20*F versus 60*F when rifle was sighted in.
So, about how much higher would my bullet be (than 1.9" at 100 yards) with the thinner air at 8,000 feet?
Thanks in advance of your reply!
