I'll load mine in the morning. Then it'll pretty much live in the truck or garage all weekend so it doesn't sweat when going from the cold outside to the warm house. Powder doesn't like moisture.

I planned on loading it tonight and putting it in my gun safe. I will take it out in the morning and put it in a case and head off.

Will I have condensation issues?

Mine's still loaded from last year... \:D

Usually (after I clean it from the year before ;\) ) I'll load it the night before my first trip, and then "try" to unload it when muzzy season ends..

Snap a couple primers in the garage then load and if I don't shoot, it stays loaded in the truck for the season. Our season's aren't very long, 5 days for the 1st one and 3 weeks for the last one I hunt.
