    Took my DW CBOB 10MM out in the cold today. Yup, cold, -2 with a windchill of -25. Set up at 19 yards, and tested only a few powders before I got stiff and froze. Damn thing can shoot though. These are off a bench.

    Good shooting. I'll bet the groups would have been much tighter if you wasn't suffering from hypothermia while shooting.

    Seriously...some powders act much different at -2 than they do at 80.

    I hate CA's politics and M-MT (mettling-mothering 'tude) but your range report :shocked: reminds me why I'm not headed back to winter if I can help it!
