A word of explanation is due. The access to the RESOURCE CENTER is limited to paid IAA members, who foot the bill for making that material available, so it is a benefit of membership. The annoying long in process is necessary to ensure the person is a current member.
However, the forum is open to the public and at the top of the page is a link to the REFERENCE section which is also open to the public with a ton of great info on ammunition and cartridge collecting, but not in the detailed depth provided in the RESOURCE CENTER.
I see that the IAA is looking for members to help with the Forum, Resource Center and IAA Journal downloads. These are unpaid volunteers, and their time is often take up with real world jobs and the like, so response times can be slow. PLEASE offer to help, if you have the slightest computer skills, so service can be improved with more people to share the load.
A BIG Thank You! to the volunteers who do the work on the IAA site, and the Journal!
