Do you know what the problem may have been?
You experienced first shot drop off. Counter act this by turning noid power to high, resetting dwell to stock and, turning the sfr up. In short, the cold thickens the lube when the bolt is not moving and more power is needed to get the bolt running right. This is what happens to spoolies in the cold.
