Barrel Temp

We all know that we should let a barrel cool off when shooting groups. On the other hand what effect does a very cold barrel have? Yesterday here in NE PA it was in the low 20's and after shooting my 5 shot group with a 22-250 thru a Lilja barrel the barrel cooled very fast. After 15 minutes it was ice cold to the touch. I had a good day shooting: 8 5 shot groups with 3 of them under 3/8".
One of them was .28". Just wondering if anyone has noticed the effect of a ice cold barrel on accuracy.
