Quick question on reloads






#1
Is it legal to sell reloads as components that a reloaded can disassemble and reload - not to be fired, or do I need to find an amnesty box to dump them in?
 
#2
If the reloaded ammo was manufactured by a licensed manufacturer, you can re-sell them to be shot.... be sure to disclose that info to the buyer. More specifically to your question, if you do not want the buyer to shoot the rounds, put a disclaimer that they are only good for disassembly and not to be shot.

This forum does not allow the sale of non licensed remanufactured ammo, even if marked as "scrap" or for "tear down for components only".

The sale of home reloaded ammunition is not illegal in any way that I am aware of, in any state.

The sale of home reloaded ammunition, constructed by a non licensed ammunition remanufacturing entity is not a good idea from a liability stand point however.

It would be safer for all if the seller broke down the ammunition him/her self and then sold the components, this would negate the possibility of anyone ever firing that home reloaded ammunition and being injured in any way due to it being defective, improperly assembled, etc.

I think it's just Trouble waiting. Back in Cali a store that sold reloads got sued.
TOO Much Bullseye gun powder in 38's. Witnessed a 38 Special Rossi go BOOM!
Thankfully no damage to his gun hand! Although the gun didn't fare well.

If you are loading it with the sole intent to sell, does that change anything?
Yes, because then you are an unlicensed manufacturer in the eyes of Uncle Sam, and he, via his swift sword of injustice, the BATFE, will smite thee mightily with many federal felony charges, and fines, plus confinement in one of the goobermunts federal dungeons.
