I was considering shooting a .17 centerfire in the rain, but thought, what would happen to a rifle bullet if it hit a rain drop? Has anyone ever had an experience of a bullet hitting a rain drop? what are the odds of this occuring, i would imagine it would depend on the amount of rain and the range shot. i wonder what the odds of shooting 100 to 300 yds in the rain without the projectile hitting a rain drop along the way is? I can't imagine the projectile would continue unimpeded accurately to the target, my .17 cal at 4300 fps would most likely not make it to the target,i've never really shot in the rain much so have no experience with this.
