Speaking as a lifelong Texan who originally planned to retire in Hill Country, I challenge you to defend your claim that the sweltering heat is limited to 100 days there. It's all relative, I know, but once you've shifted just a tad north and experienced May and September in Northern NM and Northwest AR as we've done for several years, then the brutality of Hill Country heat in those months becomes evident.
Also, increasingly October is becoming problematic, i.e., uncomfortably hot, in Hill Country. Just saying.

Carson city, NV. Cheap real estate, good weather and very close to Lake Tahoe and CA.

Depends what you define as brutal.
I spent my first 30 yrs in Colorado, but was chased out in the 1970's by fleeing native Texans who are brutal to where ever they inhabit.

Of course TX can have miserably hot days in May, and Oct as can Northern NM and NO AZ. And the PNW. We had to use fire boats to cool the I-5 draw bridge to get it to shrink enough to close (overheated in 105f weather) in Portland Oregon on Memorial Day. Temperature happens... one yr - high of 50F on July 4 nearby in WA. 20 min from Portland.

Granted Hill Country TX is one place I have lived that I have not had snow in August.
It certainly is not perfect, but works for me from Election Day until Easter. I have better places to be during shoulder season.

Guess op will just have to go to San Diego...

Ten years ago, I would have agreed. When I was there five weeks ago, most of the homes were in the $250k+ area. That might be cheap if you live on the coasts but it is higher than a lot of other locations.
