I have not chronographed any of those shells but suspect that you are correct about the muzzle velocity being lower at colder temperatures than published.

If I remember correctly, those published velocities are at 70 degrees. I'm not certain how much or what the percentage is that they drop at different temperatures however.

You've pointed out another good reason to try your shells at different temperatures and weather conditions. We don't often get to hunt under those "ideal" conditions of 60 -70 degrees, with low humidity and no wind, do we?

Thanks,
Clark

If true that load would be horrible for turkeys. Its common to have mid 20's on april mornings.

I used to shoot the old Federal Magnum Turkey 3" 2oz #5 loads before the flight control wad. My Remington 870 Super Mag with a 28" barrel and a Kick's .665 choke didn't like the flight control shells. I switched to Remington Premier Mag Turkey 3" 2oz #5's its been happy ever since.

He never pissed me off.  I just think he is a wannabe PUNK like you is all. 

Are you stupid are what?  Can't you see the resemblance?
