Re: Loading For Tomorrow?
I have brought mine in from the cold, but only when really damp weather was forecast. In one case, I pulled the ball and dumped the charge.
I have the charge in it now, actually, and I was out for a short hunt Tues evening and then brought it in. The barrel didn't get cold enough, and I put my truck's heat system so it was not hot, but wasn't COLD, either. That helped ease the transition a little.
Saw a tip here about toilet paper between the frizzen and pan, so I put a fold of that in there, and a patched cleaning rod down the barrel. Pulled that out after a day or so. I check with a toothpick...as long as the main charge feels dry and "crunchy," it should go off just fine.
