Thread: Selling home loads

    Selling home loads

    Quick one guys (I hope):

    I have a friend who shoots 5 - 40 rounds a year (.243). After some range time with me he was interested in me working up an accurate load for his .243 - also in the reduced cost. Clearly it is not worth him reloading - at the same time he needs the ammo to go on his ticket for renewal.

    Am I right in thinking I can work up a load and then transfer it to his ticket (40 a year or so) - am I ok charging him the costs? Clearly I'm not an RFD.

    Thanks in advance.

    You cant charge him anything. He can "contribute" but not buy, and reload them himself under your supervision

    Is the simplest thing to get him to buy the heads from the shop? That way they are on his ticket; and it accounts for the costs.

    Reloading for others is fraught with difficulties although not illegal if you are a RFD.
    Proofing the ammo, insuring it and meeting the Health and Safety Executive requirements are prohibitive.
    I allow people to reload their ammo on my equipment under my supervision.

    reloading under supervision if they way to do it and payment for service but not the product

    Only ammunition is entered onto your certificate.
    Missiles or expanding missiles are not recorded.

    You can list the transfer of ammo onto the cert, but remember it is illegal to sell unproofed firearms, I take it this includes ammo???

    I never knew this. So if I made up 50 rounds of 222 and sold them at cost to my mate or sold 50 rounds with a rifle when changing calibres I am actually doing something illegal?

    Depends on the RFD ! Some do, some don't. I don't mind when they do, it shows use of your firearms ... providing you're not stockpiling it of course
