Ever wondered what "Cold Zero" actually means? It is a marksman term for the first shot from a calibrated rifle. The rifle barrel is cold (and straight), and the rifle has been zero-ed in already. A shot from a zero-ed rifle is called a "zero", and thus, a shot from a cold zero-ed rifle is "cold zero".
