Having done much shooting in the WINTER in IOWA, I've found that the best way to get out of the WIND was to find a frozen river (banks typically 12 to 20 feet high). When you shoot at targets down range the bullets then keep going and run into ripples of snow - a little at a time. I would find .357's about 50 yards past the targets LYING ON TOP of the snow, encrusted with ice crystals, perfect condition.J Miller said:beeman,
Some years ago I read an article in one of the gun rags where the writer shoot a bunch of bullets into a snowbank and when the snow melted recovered them.
The writer said that the bullets were in perfect shape.
Have you ever tried that? Or, does the snow ever melt up there?
