The one or the other may remember the online “ORDATA” ammunition database (initially managed by the JMU University) which always came in handy for a quick reference when needed.
At some point (few years ago) the underwent restructuring which made the whole site cranky to use and more fractured. Then they hooked up with Swiss GICHD.
I then wrote off the whole resource years ago but today stumbled over their site again and found it now takes a special registration with lots of explanations and personal data (and not knowing the reasons for denying approval).
After we have created, trained and equipped terrorists all around the world some folks are cautious about not supplying the wrong people with bits of ammo knowledge (reading this is confusing you? good!)!
And knowing ORDATA from before I can say there is much more and better info available online.
In my view they (our so-called democratic governemnts) screwed up the whole thing (not only with creating terrorists).
Here you can view their regsitration website, that they are not demanding a hand written CV, all 10 finger prints and a DNA sample is about all.
