General Discussion / Is HPD open tomorrow (Good Friday April 18)
« on: April 17, 2014, 07:21:16 PM »
Does anyone know?  Unfortunately I think I know the answer, but would love for someone to tell me I'm  wrong.  I think they are closed tomorrow because it is a State holiday...

I was planning on finally picking up my permit, and picking up my pistol to register it, but I just remembered my kid doesn't have school tomorrow because of the holiday  :'(

Does anyone know if they will be again allowing F-Class shooters for this practice event?  Mahalo in advance for any info  :shaka:

Reloading / Reloading: Lessons Learned
« on: January 10, 2014, 10:44:48 AM »
What mistakes have you made that you have leaned upon and established procedures or something to prevent it from happening again?  What tricks have you found along the way?

I use a turret press.
Here is my list:

1.  I was about to set primers when I remembered that I forgot to check headspace.  All 250-300 pieces of brass needed to be re-sized.
          I now have a printed procedure on my reloading bench, just so I don't forget that again

2.  I was goingt to start decapping my spent casings in my decapping die, but when I put the case through the press I got a stuck case.  I accidentilly lined up my FL sizing die.
          PAYING ATTENTION would have prevented this.  I now labled my dies (even though they don't even look the same...)

3.  I added walnut media and the casings into the tumbler and then added brass polish after.  After 2 - 2 1/2 hours I found a that majority of the primer pockets had a hard residue.
          I now add my brass polish to my media and let it run for 10-15 minutes and then add the brass after.     

4.  After I am done tumbling in walnut media, I use a media separator.  After the brass is covered in dust.
          I now add about 3-4 used drier sheets and they collect most of the dust     

5.  I had 50 cases filled with powder that I was about ready to start seating bullets into when I accidently pulled a cloth that the tray was on and spilled poweder.
            I now seat a bullet as soon as I add powder to prevent this from happening

One of the biggest things that I try NOT to do is become complacent.  I can recall a few times where I caught things that were not right further down the line of loading than I would have liked.  (found a few cases with different headstamps right before I was about to start setting primers).

So, what have you learned?
Reloading / What's your favorite .308 bullet for long range?
« on: November 18, 2013, 10:19:32 AM »
Just wondering what others have used with success.  I currently settled on 175gr SMK for my bolt R700.  I plan on shooting at Pu'uloa with that load and have high hopes.  With that said, does accuracy at 100yrds translate to accuracy at longer distances majority of the time?  I understand that there are tons of variations that come into play, but I'm just asking a general question.  I think my next load development will be with 155gr Lapua Scenars.  So what's your guys experiences with different bullets?

Reloading / Chrono recommendations
« on: July 30, 2013, 09:53:46 AM »
I am in the process of doing load development and was wondering what chonographs others are using.  I will be using it at the Kokohead range and I'm just trying to figure out if I need some type of stand.  Awhile ago I seen someone with a chrono set-up, and from what I recall it was on a stand and he positioned it infront of the bench.  I'm pretty sure I need a similar set up, but any input would be appreciated.

edit:  I have looked at the post Heavies has made, and although it does sound like a great chrono I was looking for a chrono in the $200 range first.
General Discussion / Shooting 200 yards at Kokohead
« on: June 14, 2013, 02:22:33 PM »
I've seen people put up targets at 200 yard before, so my question is where are the holes to put the rifle frame in?  What bench/benches do you need to be sitting on to target shoot at 200 yards?
