The fed 215 is hot enough but the load is probably not.
Lot's of powders are temp. sensitive and will act differently with temperature changes.
What round are you loading ? there may be a powder that will work better in those
temperatures or you may have to up the powder charge and produce a cold weather load
that would be to hot for summer time temps.
I have loads that change over 125 ft/sec from winter to summer because of temperatures
