It will become legal to post them but what will the carriers say? they might decide to keep them on the restricted list, dont count your chickens!my FEO recently informed me that from May expanding components will be able to be posted due to the recent change in the law dose anyone know the exact implementation date & procedure as he didnt yet know the details?
Bullets aren't on a restricted list, post office list has ammunition on it not bulletsIt will become legal to post them but what will the carriers say? they might decide to keep them on the restricted list, dont count your chickens!
My flo told me today on my renewal visit that I can hold any amount of bullets as they are only interested In made up rounds as long as you don't load over your entitlement .... so yes you can....At the risk of sounding dim.... Correction; because I am dim, does this mean there are no longer any restrictions on the amount of either bullets or complete rounds that can be purchased and held? I'm not intending to build up a giant cache, but would like to hold a few different boxes of bullets for reloading.
When people make up a batch of homeloads do they just self insert the quantity on to their FAC and sign?
No requirement to enter anything on your FAC - you are not transferring or selling them to yourself.
Some FEOs appear to have funny ideas about this, and it has been reported previously on the forum that they have requested homeloads are entered, but there is no requirement to do so.
I've had virtually nothing entered in the ammo section of my FAC for years except .22LR, 12b slugs and (very occasionally) the odd box of expanding bullets bought in the UK - nearly all I've bought to date have come from abroad and therefore not been entered.
And before it comes up - entries do not provided 'evidence' of use of a firearm for FAC renewal purposes, and neither is it needed to satisfy 'good reason' for continued possession.
Start with the Home Office Guidance which they should be working to:Which legislation or act can you quote ?
Nope, and if it were in relation to home loading you'd think it would have pride of place in the relevant section at the end of HOG chapter 13 wouldn't you?So basically there isn't anything in writing saying ammo must be written as proof of useage in the guidance?
Depends on the level of knowledge the applicant can demonstrate when faced with it I guess.I always wondered how much they follow and how much they make up
