Wind and cold for load test?
Just picked up my new(to me) rifle this week, and fire formed 40 cases. I reloaded 4 different powder charges with 2 different bullets. 8 rnds of each charge, 4 rnds with each bullet.(32 rnds total) Guess I was bored, but thought this is the right way to start looking for the best load for my rifle. Savage 10FP,.308win pre-accutrigger that had only 60 rnds out of it.
The problem is: I am chomping at the bit to test these loads, but a cold snap and snow storm just set in to northeren Michigan. Gusts up to 20mph, and windchill down to -15*. If I start my test in this condition from a heated shoot building, shooting 50yrds for group, is this going to effect performance?
I am fairly new to this, but want to do this right. Should I just suck it up and wait out the storm, or shoot tomarrow and again after the storm? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] Thanks in advance for some insight. Jeff
If I buy another rifle, Do I still need a Wife????
