Re: Long Range Shooting and Rain?
With rainfall comes low air pressure and cooler temps. This maybe where someones 22 bullets didnt make it to the target. How far was he shooting and with what bullet?
Personaly I do not have any first hand scientifec knowledge of what any effects of rain in and of its self has on a bullet. However I have shot in dry air and rainy air and have never seen any abnormal effects on predicted POI. Predicted meening all other lighting and atmosperic conditions were accounted for and taken into account.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
