    I wanted to compare 3 loads yesterday in my .260AI. I didn't get to the range until about 10:00. Damn it got hot! I'm using the sweat factor as my excuse.

    Groups suffered. Still getting the best results and velocity with RL17. 300 yards.

    Heat sucks for sure just wait till its so hot you cant shoulder your weapon with out burning your face or even touch it with out gloves.

    I love shooting but I would have been in my house drinking a beer in that heat .
