    Gifted ammo

    Hi all

    What is the correct protocol for gifted ammo re: FACs? Is there one? I have been given a lot of .22 ammo. It is within my allowed holding allowance. Just wondering as when I bought some in a shop, the owner claimed that all ammo had to be entered on my FAC due to recent advice/legislation i.e. after the 2002 Home Office doc. which states expanding ammo need not be entered but must be recorded by the seller.

    Get who ever has gifted you the ammo to write it on your FAC like they would do in a shop.

    Kallisti you are confusing bullets and ammunition. All ammunition transfers must be entered on your certificate. Expanding bullets are another matter and are very often entered on certificates by dealers in some areas because they have instructed to do so but in reality it is only necessary for them to record the sale in their register.
    Yes expanding bullets do count towards your ammunition holding.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    When I re-load bullets for friends I enter them on their certificate.
    This also proves to the Police that the individual is using the weapon.

    HWH.
