    Hi,

    How does PB perform in cold weather. Specifically in 1 1/8 oz, 1200 fps loads in temperatures we regularly encounter in the upper midwest in winter?

    Thanks

    PB like 800X is ok in cold weather as long as you stay with the hottest primers...greendot will do the same but is easier to touch off..I love the patterns I got with it as well for handicap shooting from a IM choke

    works well...I've always used Win 209 primers, so I can't say what difference weather would have on the performance. Usually quality components yeild quality results.

    I use PB with Remington primers, even for one-ounce loads here in Pennsylvania and have no problems. But I keep the shells in the heated car interior en route to the club and take them into the clubhouse when I get there.
