There’s a lot of talk about ‘cold bore’ shots in the precision rifle community. Hollywood has made the term popular and so many a new shooter finds themselves overly concerned with their cold bore shot. They want to know how the cold bore shot is different than other shots, and how to account for the difference to increase chances of a hit. The goals are all well and good but some of the information is a bit misleading. Having been involved with long range shooting for several years now we can discuss this and hopefully put some of the rumors and voodoo to rest!
