Rast, just save the pooky loads for the slow birds!

Actually, I use a recipe similar to your pressure using 700X, 15 grns, 2.5" Fed shell, Pink CB 12 wads, 7/8 oz shot, @ 1150-1200 fps. I have shot this load in game guns in Temps @ 20 with no pookyness.

Temps affect pressure greatly in Rifle cartridges, to the point where a load developed at 80f will be dangerous at 100+f. to the point of blowing primers. Altitude aslo works on pressure. Nowhere near the effects with shotgun stuff, as we are not at the operating pressures of rifle or handguns, but there will be some change based on heat and altitude. Generally the higher either goes, so goes the pressure.
