Ive heard people say that acuracy will drop off below 50, however i normaly hunt when its below 20, and i often shoot in temps ranging from 40 to 10, and havnt noticed much, so long as im not shivering!

There is competition grade ammo available for cold weather shooting. Lapua/SK Jagd makes Polar Biathlon. It is the tightest grouping ammo I've shot below the freezing point. Even the old dimpled case head Federal UMB's groups opened up below 32 F/ 0 C. The biathlon ammo is pretty costly- about 16 bucks per 100 rnds....
