    Tougher Ammo Regulations in California 2018

    California gun owners are facing tougher ammunition regulations, they can no longer order from online warehouses and ship to residential addresses.

    New laws approved by California voters and lawmakers in 2016 have the state’s 6-million-plus hunters, recreational shooters and other gun owners bracing for ammunition price increases, shortages and additional headaches in the near future.The ammo regs are part of a flurry of new gun control rules — including those enacted as part of Proposition 63 — that cover a variety of bases, including how gun owners can store their firearms and to whom they may be borrowed.
    One new rule, which takes effect in January 2018, mandates that Californians who purchase ammunition online or through catalogs must ship their ammunition through a licensed dealer — not directly to their home or business. State residents must also undergo a background check when buying ammunition, and anyone who sells ammunition will need to obtain an “ammunition vendor license.”
    “This new law will drive up the price of ammunition to cover sellers’ increased costs,” said Ryan Bronson, director of conservation and public policy for Vista Outdoor, which is the parent company of Federal Premium Ammunition. “It will also essentially ban internet and mail-order ammo sales, since everyone will need to do in-store background checks to take possession.”

The real extent of this state of misinformation is known only to those who are in situations to confront facts within their knowledge with the lies of the day." —Thomas Jefferson (1807)

    It would be very profitable to open up a few ammo stores across the border in Arizona and Nevada right now!

    The good news: It does not effect internet reloading supplies. The bad news: Not yet.

    it most certainly does ... all internet sales are taxed. any purchases made online and delivered to your door leaves a record. CA should have no trouble deciphering who is ordering what/when and where

    At least for now Internet reloading supplies are still legal.
