Good point. I'm pretty sure the TAC load will be okay, as I worked that one up during the summer last year when it was 90+ out there.

It was about 75 to 80 when I took the CFE loads out there last weekend. I'll definitely be monitoring them closely as the weather warms up. I've heard that CFE is pretty temperature stable as far as ball powders go, but I'll need to see that for myself.
