Re: temperature sensitive

That should be just about right for shooting running deer at 500 to 600 yards with 30 mph cross winds off hand. If I had your skill sets I would use RL powders too.

Re: temperature sensitive

A test: http://www.shootingsoftware.com/ftp/...%20Factors.pdf
From it:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Both barrel temperature and powder temperature are
important variables, and they are not the same variable. If you fail to take barrel
temperature into account while doing pressure testing, your test results will be very
significantly affected.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you’re not controlling barrel temperature, you about as well might not bother
controlling powder temperature, either. In the cases investigated, barrel temperature is a
much stronger variable than powder temperature.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The pressures generated by IMR4350 and H4350 are, for all practical purposes, equally affected
by powder temperature in this case. Yet Hodgdon advertises that their “Extreme Powders” are not
affected by temperature.

do it all the time. I actually sight my rifle in as insurance before I hunt it. I'll have my brother take a vid. of the shot this year so you can put in on disk and mount it on your wall.

I remember hearing about you in a song once. "Kill a deer or Buffalo , from 100 yards don't you know, just an arrow and my hickory bow. I do it all the time" So you must be one of those "Indian Outlaw" fellers.

naw, I don't stick 'em with a bow.
I think I've got the new 7 ready to go lately. If I get a good tag and my brother's with I'll put the vid. up for you. We were chatting about doing that after the last thread anyway. I'll probably bounce on anything with antlers this year though as n.d.'s tag count is down and I don't have more than a few points built up. If you could get past peeing your pants watching me roast a doe with one of my 7's or 30's I'll try to get a vid..

Re: temperature sensitive

Cool, I and all the other that just PMed me will be waiting..

Don't forget the 30 mph crosswind and better take at least 5 bullets and lots of video memory.

gotta love all those infamous p.m.'s.
Since the topic of the thread seems to have devolved into broz worrying about who is talking about me behind my back I'll simply dropping off the thread and let him talk to his "friends". The movie castaway comes to mind here.

Good luck O.P..... sight in your rifle first and you'll be fine with dang near any powder.
