Re: Reloading in the garage....temperature changes
The only problem I've experienced reloading in a "cold" garage was that my friends powder scale acted kind of sticky one night. I lifted the balance beam from the pivot point and found it was a little dirty, cleaned it and sprayed some silicone lube on it and wiped it down with clean cloth (Silicone spray dissipates almost immediately)and we were good to go. My friend later admitted to putting a little WD40 on it at an earlier date. So we went back and checked the few powder charges already weighed out before the cleaning and found all but one to be off.
WD40 is great stuff, used properly, but don't put it any where for long term lubrication is needed. It's made from a fish oil base and it thickens and attracks dirt and dust, but it is a great quick fix.
One other thing, make yourself a set of "Check Weights" take a few different weight bullets that weigh out on the nose and put them in a container for safe keeping and use them to check your scale instead of buying an expensive set of check weights!
