Neither should be dangerous on a hot day so long as you didnt develop the loads in 20 degree air and take it to 120 degrees. Also it depends on how hot your loads are to begin with. Either powder should be fine from cool to semi hot temps (30-85 degrees).
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.
