My gun club has a Chosin reservoir shoot every year in January in honor of the brave men that fought, froze and died there. I thought I'd get a head-start and do some -4 F shooting today with a couple of military-style rifles (Mosin Nagant 91/30 Tula and S&W AR15 M4 style).
Did I mention it was 4 below zero? Brrrrr. I cannot imagine what those kind of temps are like when you don't have a warm pickup waiting for you after an hour or so. My hat is most definitely off to those soldiers.
Both rifles performed flawlessly with open sights at 100 yards. I expected that from the Ruskie rifle, which was build to withstand a Siberian rhapsody. She shot 'MOG" (moment of German) and cycled quite nicely
Pleasant surprise was how the MP15 performed with the plastic Pmags. Perfect as usual and the Vortex held zero just fine. I was not sure how everything would respond to going from room temperature to Ice Station Zebra
By the way CLP is a great lube for all the shooting I have done regardless of temperature. I have used it as hot as 102 and as low as -15. Good stuff
Any of you southern boys want to join me in seeing how darn good your guns are, let me know. It will be winter here until June I reckon
