I'm not talking about a light rain, I'm talking about a tropical rain where the drops are the size of a cherry.

Even when the rain drops are huge (like back in Virginia) and falling in such high volume that the target can't be seen, rail guns set up pointing at the target before the rain started still shoot normal sized groups for the unlimited agg during the rain.

Hunting in heavy rain?

I don't worry about the effect of a heavy rain on my trajectory or accuracy because if the raindrops are the size of cherries, I'll surely have taken cover and won't be hunting. But it's nice to know that if I do hunt in some rain, I shouldn't have to be too concerned about the effect on ballistics.
