What would be the lowest pressure that could be shot in 20 degree temps yet maintain constant reliability?

Shooting 7625 right now with 1.125 for some caps loads.

I agree with you there 12c1 24 gn pb for me. Outstanding load.

I'm using up some 7625 for winter league and the pressures seem quite a bit lower at the 12-1235 fps mark.

Maybe im over thinking it.

7625 does not like the cold. Neil Winston did some testing with 7625 and Red Dot at cold temps.

The way I remember it.

He loaded them both at 1200fps. He threw them both in a freezer over night. The next day shot them over his chronograph set up, the 7625 was 125fps slower. The Red Dot didn't change.

If I didn't remember this exactly, I'm sure some one will correct me. :)

Neil, It does peak my interest when all the games shooters, in the cold, tell me what a nice load of 7625 they have. It usually means more money for me. Only on a good day.

Thank you for doing the work!

I appreciate all the work (and I know it's work) you do.

Anymore, mostly at Evergreen,PITA and some games. Our local Cowlitz Gun Club for games every week. We have two traps and a pretty good turn out.

It's been some time since I have shot at Bremerton. Nice club.

Hillsboro, Portland in Oregon.
