Re: Moose Down 778m
Hi Jeff, no it wasn't dependent on temp. For example, I shoot an average of 2887 fps at 59f and 2812 at 35f. When I test a load I chill it for 12 hrs at ambient outside temp, so have a pretty good idea of what it shoots. After going through my log again, I generally have fairly stable muzzle velocities except for about 1 in 7 that is approx 100 fps high. I'm pretty sure the first shot on the moose was one of those. Too many variables at this point. Once I get the new chrono, and start loading with Norma instead of Win brass, I'll be able to narrow things down a bit. If my internal capacity varies as much as the externals of the Win brass did, that may well be the problem. Have another long cold winter to get it right... Probably over thinking things right now.
