Thanks need some.  H4895 is my 308 powder. Did you see W231?

Nope. I even asked for it.
Reloading / Young Guns has H4895 and H380

Just fyi fellas,

Was at YG this afternoon and they just received a couple cases of H4895, H380 and a couple of others.  No Varget or pistol powders that I saw.  Delivery was still in unopened boxes on the floor.

BTW, I picked up a pound of CFE pistol to try out.  Anyone use this stuff yet?

I see your point about getting chrono info to figure trajectory at farther distances, especially since KHSC is only 100 yds.
How far do you place your chrono from your barrel at KHSC?

10ft. At KhSc I go prone on the left side cuz it's flat.

For the reloaders, how important is it to have a chrono when testing your different loads?
I don't own one and was wondering if the general consensus is that the manuals listed velocity is close enough for your satisfaction .   Difference being barrel, twist, case and primer listed and your own.
For target and defensive purposes does accuracy trump velocity for up to 100 yards?   Just trying to get educated if that sounds like a dumb question.

At 100 target shooting  I'd say a Chono isn't that necessary. Just watch for pressure signs. I use one to see where factory ammo is in that particular gun /barrel length as a reference for my reloads. I think it is necessary when shooting distance as you can plug in your numbers to see trajectory for that weapon / load.  For hunting, you will also know what distance your particular bullet hits the fps that it will not expand well.  :shaka:

I've never saw that big a difference with 0.1gr change. It would be hard to say it wasn't my shooting that made the difference unless I had weight matched bullets & cases, meticulous brass prep and assembly, no wind, one helluva rest, and monitored barrel temp. I don't see measurable change in accuracy until about 0.3

I remember hearing a story about some guy with a 7.62x39 TC pistol, out shooting another guy with a full size AK.

I heard the tc was scoped but the ak was irons. Either way it was good shooting.  I'm surprised u remember that story  ;D

do you shoot that on the rifle or pistol side?

So far I've only shot it at Schofield CR1 when I sighted in and chrono'd a bunch of factory 300blk.  At KHSC I'd go to rifle @ 100yds.  Those factory A-MAX's chrono perfect out of this barrel.  Keeps them subsonic at 950-960 fps with a super mild recoil and noticeably quieter report.  :thumbsup:
Rem 120 and 125 match came out at around 2030 fps with snappy recoil similar to 357 in a full size revo
PNW 147 gr was 1650 fps. Slower, more comfortable recoil impulse.

Finally got my 300blk MGM barrel  :D

8" barrel 300 blk Encore with Burris 2x and subsonic 208 gr Hornady A-MAX. 

I knew 300 RUM and Barnes bullets were a beast, but DAMN!!  :worship:

100 yards btw.  Obviously not far enough for the plate.  For comparison, the small pits are from 147gr FMJ 308.

they were always crap bullets.

this ^

I would say about 20% of my stuff hasn't been shot.  Mostly the stuff I bought under my C&R.  M1 Carbines, Garands, Mosins, SKS's, Springer 1903, various old school stuff, and I'll probably never shoot em.  60%  of my stuff shot once or twice just for function check / sight in.  The last 20% see action when I get time to shoot (lately once or twice a year !!  :( ).  Of the new stuff I haven't shot would be my G42, Encore pistol, and Beretta Neos.

Brought back some goodies from Reno Cabelas for my Encore pistol.   :thumbsup: Now just waiting for my 8" MGM barrel.  Then some chrono homework to do on these factory rounds before I cook up my reloads.  ;) Also brought back some 44-40 that is impossible to find here for my Dad.

I was told it isn't allowed at Waipio range either.  I told them I have a permit to use one and they still said no.  They let me shoot it there that day but said no more after that.  I went to their manager and was given the run around.  Just find a secluded area and a get a GOOD block target.  I sighted in my Excalibur Ibex at 20yds in my yard and the elevation lines on the scope are on the money to 50yds.

As stated above.  Hawaii laws =  :crazy:

As simple a question as this is, am I the only one that has a hard time making a decision?

Like asking which kid you would take.....Damn you KK!

I love all my children!  Either we all go or not.  Nobody gets left behind........that includes you my little Titan 25 that temperamental pot metal little bastard.......

It'd be cool to kick it Euro though........STG58 and akimbo cz82's  :thumbsup:

now someone hurry up and pass me some tissue or a sock!!   ;D

all I got to say is.  AWESOME JOB to the whole legal team!  Now tell Beretta to hurry up and release the Pico...... :thumbsup:
I keep my 640 in a small quick access safe.  It's been there before my kids were born and they grew up walking right past it.  They don't even notice it and have no idea whats in there.  Being that it is secured in the safe, I don't see why I wouldn't have loaded chambers regardless of if its a revo or semi.  If it was tucked under a mattress or under a pillow, then I could see leaving the chamber empty but recommend a better way to store it anyway.  Having to rack a slide just complicates the situation.  When you just woke up unexpectedly and are under stress, will you short stroke the slide? What if you accidentally hit the mag release?  Would you rather still have 1 in the chamber or looking under the bed for all of your rounds with a empty chamber? If this is a non-issue because you bought a pistol with a mag safety, then that's your fault and should have bought a real gun.  j/k  :rofl:
Thanks for all the replies  :shaka: Maybe I'll switch to a revolvolator for home defense  ;)

Reasons a wheelie sits next to the bed:
- wife had a hard time racking a slide
- can't limp wrist malfunction a revo
- wheelie 2nd shot not dependent on the first shot to cycle the action
- no hammer / slide movement to get snagged on anything

BTW: its a S&W no lock 640-1  :thumbsup:
Six rounds in chambers of bedroom gun.  Always,

Make that 5 chambers full of gold dots for me  :thumbsup:  All 5 ready to follow the laser.

An alternative is Schofield Rod and Gun - you can rabid fire and scare the crap out of bowling pins

+1 I'll take Cr1 over khsc any day. Being able to shoot pistol and rifle off the same bench is so much more convenient.  Shoot from about 15yds and up. Not to mention the big box of bowling pins for anyone to shoot at.
