Thread: Good news for reloaders

    Good news for reloaders

    Limits on the amount of powder reloadersLimits can store has been revised.

    You can store up to 15kg of shooters powder this includes black powder.

    So you can now store 15kg of smokeless powder or 15 kg of black powder ( no change) or any mixed quantity of smokeless and black powder not exceeding 15kg in total

    The way the price of powder is going lately, ever upwards I don't think the new legislation will make a great deal of difference to many reloaders.

    Here's some more possible good news.
    I took 101 in for a variation this morning, also wanted to up my ammo holding allowance from 250.
    Spoke to the head man, he said he would do what he could, but no promises.
    Next he said that expanding ammo was going to come off section 5, so bullets did not count towards your ammo allowance until fully made up.
    That would help me out, I can only hold 250 but use 3 or 4 different bullets in my .22hornet, and possibly the same again in .222

    Don't hold your breath. My certificate is in for renewal, well actually it should have been renewed by the 25th January but sending in the paperwork in November obviously wasn't enough time for them to deal with it. Anyway when the FEO called I asked him about the possibility of expanding bullets being taken off the section 5 list and he didn't think it was going to happen in the next couple of years if at all. Incidentally I upped my holding for 9.3mm because of this.

    When Adrian Whiting did his report on the Cumbria shootings didn't he make some comment regarding downgrading expanding bullets, anyone remember what he said?

    The way powder prices are going ever upwards I would think it will make a big difference to reloaders as you can now legally hold three times as much smokeless powder. I can not see the price of powder getting cheaper. It also now makes 8lb tubs viable to sell in the UKAn 8lb tub of Hogdens or IMR is about 100 bucks in the states that's just over 8 a lb
