General Discussion / Attn: New Members - Post Verification
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. 
Forum Blog / Minor changes coming up
We are moving some boards around.  In the last 9 years we have grown way beyond the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge, and we feel it is time to make the site more "Creedmoor generic."  
Reloading / Alliant Powder 6.5 Creedmoor Reloading Data
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.
Reloading / Do you work up loads for suppressed and not suppressed?
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?
Forum Blog / Are you a forum member outside of the US?
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:
North Korea

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.
Forum Blog / Politics, religion, race, etc.
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.

Forum Blog / Donators should not see ads
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.
