Chronographing bullets in Albuquerque, at 5950' above sea level and low humidity, I get much higher velocities than when I shoot the same bullets from the same guns back home in Indiana (630' above sea level, high humidity).

500-yard shots are easier here than at lower altitudes, because it's easier to see the target in the thinner, drier air. Don't know if the bullet travels better, but I sure hit better.
