Checked my Ripley Ar5s over the chrono yesterday in preparation for Xmas shoot today.Results confirmed what has happening over this cold spell.
786fps @ 18 deg.C (room temp )
772 fps @4 deg. C
754 fps @ 0 deg C
This represents a drop of almost 1 Ft.Lb. To compensate I've been adding 5yds. to the ranged distances, which has worked out quite well.I have a feeling that too much grease on the hammer spring contributes to the problem.
