Best weather for shootin\'?

Is there any certain type of weather that seems to produce your best groups? ie: Partly cloudy, sunny, etc. Jay [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

    Think you will find that the best groups are shot very early in the morning or very late in the evening on clear days. Wind has tendency to die down, no mirage, no clouds to play havoc with optical illusions on where target actually is as sun goes in an out etc

    In my area, the best weather is right now. Temp around 10C, very calm conditions, light overcast days (no mirage and limited shadows).

    I can shoot a 5rd group and the barrels just start to get warm. They cool fast. No mirage or swirling winds. Very consistent.

    Worse is during extreme cold or heat. My range has a clay/sand ground and mirage is horrid.

    However, the worse day shooting is still better then the best day at work.

    I like about 50 degrees clear sky in the morning and evening when the wind dies.

    i know for super fast rounds in an m1a1 we use to lie to the computer and input 29.92 for barometric pressue.the pressure has alot to do with flight and speed and resistance.but finding the perfect day is tough so what the hell a good clear day no wind and a hundred miles from the nearest town
