What would you guys recommend when shooting baits....should I shoot in the low 50s? or what temp range should I consider waiting till it gets warmer outside

I heat my shop up in the winter as I need it and get the inside temp to about 45-50, however I store all my plastic and colorants in the house once the outside temp dips into the 40's.

Something else you may want tio think about is having the molds sweat when cold and injecting hot plastic. I keep all of my aluminum plastics molds in the house too. If you keep the aluminum molds in the cold, say below 30 degrees, they can develop sweat quickly when the plastic is injected and that can cause pockets, dents and incomplete areas in the baits.
