Quite a few new members have issues posting on the forum for the first time. This because in order to prevent bots and other idiots from bombarding the forum with SPAM, we require verification of the first 5 posts. After your 5th post, the verification stops automatically. In order for the verification to work, you can't have any popup blockers enabled or you will never see window asking for verification. We know this is inconvenient, but it has helped us tremendously in preventing the forum from getting spammed.
Our military just dropped a MOAB (mother of all bombs) in Afghanistan to kill Taliban and ISIS cockroaches hiding in tunnels. To quote Gene Hackman, "By all means sir. Drop that fucker, ...twice." https://youtu.be/z4Yw3qU58w4
The attachment has the tested load data that Alliant has developed for the Creedmoor. As is the case with Alliant load data for most metallic cartridges, these loads are the max loads and need to be reduced by 10% for starting charges.
I worked a load for my RPR. It loves 42.0 gr of H4350. Today for the first time I tried my .308 suppressor on the RPR. I was expecting the POI to change (and it went down), but I was not expecting the bullets to be all over the place. Do you work up loads for both suppressed and not suppressed shooting?
Lately we have seen an increase in traffic from China, Germany, and France. We don't cater to those countries, so I think that traffic has no good intentions. We are also getting a ton of SPAM attempts from the Philippines and hack attempts mostly from Ukraine. With our current host, we can't block 100% of the traffic from specific countries, but last night I found that I can challenge that traffic. In other words, I can make it harder for bots from specific countries to reach the site by challenging them with a math problem. They will have to provide the answer to the problem before getting access to the site. After 5 minutes they will be challenged again. That should stop most of the automated attacks, but it will also make it harder any member in the following countries to reach the site: Ukraine Russia China Philippines North Korea France Germany Croatia India Pakistan Sweden Romania
If you are a member in any of those countries send me a private message and I will see what I can do to let you through.
For the most part this is a self-moderating forum. The purpose of this forum is to exchange information related to the 6.5 Creedmoor metallic cartridge. Please keep politics, religion, race, etc. in other forums designated for those subjects. If you feel that a post is inappropriate or offensive, please report it. Aussie65 or I will take care of it. I hate censorship but I also hate BS, so please keep it clean.
As most of you know, our forum logo, shirts, etc. come from Aussie65. He keeps getting emails about how to get stuff from him. Here is the link to the website where you can buy 6.5 Creedmoor merchandise:
First, thank you very much to the forum donators. Donators will not see ads in the forum. I just fixed that for most of you, but there are a few where the email address used in PayPal does not match your email address in the forum. If you donated and are still seeing ads, PM me your name, email address used in PayPal, and approximate date of donation. I will take care of it.
