...that could affect tightbore barrels too.

store your guns in some other (warm and with constant humidity) room one day, make measurements and do the same thing a few days later - compare ?
Well, I doubt either of those would have much of an effect. My basement doesn't really change much form night to night, maybe a few degrees at the most. And it's my AEGs and M24 (spring) that are affected, not my springer (which is the odd part). This is obviously not a simple issue, it has to be even more complex than I can even figure out at this point (I'm no rocket scientist, but all I can even think how slight changes in humidity and temp can alter the fps that much without any other changes is the compressability factor).
