What was noticeable was the amount of wind drift, which was a bit more than I would have given on a warmer day, and that must be down to the denser air.
That's good info for a novice like me Rich. I've been getting frustrated this last couple of weekends chasing the zero. I'd blamed everything from my shooting inconsistencies, springer still settling down after a rebuild and finally started to doubt the integrity of the 2nd hand scope I recently started using.

It's always good to glean bits of information. You may of saved my sanity.
