I cant speak for RL17 but I tested Rl25 a couple weeks ago between 71 degrees and -2 or -3 and the difference was 20 FPS even. 3 shot average for each load. I say this lightly because I have learned over the years that sensitivity can be minimal or great with ANY given powder depending on caliber, case load density, and bullet weight. Some may see 20 others may see 100. You just never can guage it for any given powder.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, 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.
