Unlike most people in the Shooting community I always make sure to shoot all year round.
And truth be told, when it starts getting cold; I really enjoy the quiet time. The ranges tend to be empty. The bugs are gone. And the air is crisp. What a great time to check / confirm your cold weather dope!
Yes really. If your confirmed load data was tested in 75 degree weather, you could be in for a surprise when you shoot at 32 or even minus 10 degrees. Yup. I do that too!
You don’t have to test long strings. Check your cold bore zero and some dope out to say 600 yards.
You’ll get a lot out of it. And like I said, the range will be quiet. It’s my favorite time of year to train.
