Thread: is it legal to sell ammunition?

  1. #1

    is it legal to sell ammunition?

    Advice appreciated:

    Is it legal for a standard FAC holder (ie. not an RFD) to sell ammunition to another FAC holder (obviously provided the buyer has the appropriate authority on their ticket)?

    Factory ammo is fine, as long as face-to-face. I've sold ammo with rifles that I've sold, and just entered the details onto the buyer's FAC
    Sako 75 6.5x55mm-Z6i 3-18x50. MauserM12 .308-SIII 6-24x50. Beretta 690 III Field 12b.

    as above.
    Not an issue providing the transfer is recorded on their license. The only problem can be if you are perceived as selling regularly and it starts looking like are dealing in it with out the proper rfd authority.

    Why ? - I can't see any problem as long as you have the authority to purchase the ammunition in the first place and all transfers are recorded on the purchasers FAC.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    When I inquired about occasional transfers of reloaded ammo from me to other users of the same calibre I was told I would have to be an RFD.

    Ah RELOADED that's a different matter. You can give it away but not a good idea to sell it normally.

    Unless you have every batch of reloaded ammo proved, as in at the proof house, it is illegal to sell home loaded ammo.

    If you reload for someone else, get them to buy the bits, you put it together, they add it to their certificate and buy you a pint/bottle of wine etc or give £20 to your kids. Once you start making ammo for money, you are entering the realm of liability.

    You misunderstand. If you are shifting factory ammo on a regular basis as opposed to casually then it might be perceived as trading hence the need for an rfd license.
