Underboring doesn't break paint so you're good.

You have a fairly wide window before your underbore becomes too extreme as to negatively affect the shot. The number I see most often (and the number with the empirical tests behind it) is .008. So as long as your paint is .690 or less you'll be fine (and I can almost guarantee you your paint is < .690).

That being said it is possible that cold weather might negatively affect your ability to underbore. While I doubt that is the case all of my underboring experience has been done in California where the coldest I've ever played was 40 degrees. If you're playing near freezing you might run into the limit before .008 (though my guess is when things are that cold the limit is going to be the bolt's force on the ball rather than your barrel bore).
