Instinct tells me you're right. I don't know if the science backs us up. Here in Santa Fe, the altitude is 7000 feet, and the relative humidity close to zero eight or nine months out of the year, so I'm guessing a higher atmospheric density (at lower altitude) and higher humidity (at sea level) would slow a bullet down. But to an appreciable difference a shooter would notice? You appeared to, so that's reasonable anecdotal evidence. I'd be curious to hear what some of the guys on the site more familiar with ballistics might tell us. Is a distance shot easier (meaning less variables) in La Paz than it is in Miami?
