I got an email from a reader who was looking to order a CDS dial from Leupold, which requires certain information (including altitude, temperature, etc.). He was concerned about what temperature to provide them. What if his dial said 80 degrees Fahrenheit and he was hunting in 40-degree weather?
What effect does temperature have on a bullet’s impact at reasonable hunting distances?
We’ll take a fairly common hunting round, the .270 Winchester with a 130 gr.
