Re: Temperature sensative loads

Use Zip Loc bag with the bullets inside.

I'm not sure about the condensation builds up. In Alaska or in Canada, the cabin was cozy warm and the bullets were inside the cabin all night then went out of the door in the morning with the minus 5C or 25F.
I'm not sure if it will affect the accuracy?

    The powder was from the same can. Brass was all prepped the same, loading process was the same, bullets from same box, etc. The only variable that I can i.d. that changed was the ambient temp increase of about 25 degrees.

    Thanks for input
