Environmental question

1. Can temperature effect a bullet horizontally?

2. How does shooting up hill or down hill effect the trajectory?

Thank you for your time.

1. It should not unless the rifle or barrel themselves are affected by heat, IE, expanding and contracting, warpage, etc.

2. see http://www.exteriorballistics.com/eb.../article1.html
