Re: Load development in 80 + degrees
I have found that if you run a MAX load that was developed in cool air and 80+ degrees comes around, pressure signs are sure to follow. It doesnt matter if it is "extreme" powder or not.
The difference is when using extreme powders and you work up to max and actually back off, things typically stay cool even in warmer air. They key is IF you back down from max. Other powders may be more sensitive and show signs of high pressure in warmer air than when developed even under max loads.
The bottom line is that if youre running absolute max loads that were developed in cool air, be prepared for pressure signs in the heat regardless of what powder youre using.
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.
