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.
Hi Flintlock,

As far as I am aware Ripleys shouldn't have any oil or grease on the Hammer as it will affect performance in the cold

AA TX 200 ... various guises
