    Default Confused: are powder, primers, brass & bullets "ammo" under new law?

    I've seen some conflicting discussion here on this topic. I read the law and there does not seem to be anything on the sale of components like primers, powders, etc.

    Then, I read here that the ATF has classified these as ammo and, therefor, they will need a background check for purchase which means they cannot be shipped to your home unless you are an FFL.

    Some non-NY big box sellers stopped shipping these. Others stopped and then started up again?

    So, what gives?

    Thanks...

    Federal law would indicate yes, NY says no.

    It will take some time to get all of this sorted out.

    If the law is so confusing that you don't know if you are a criminal, just turn your firearm in for a $50 gift card and rest secure in the hope that the government will take care of you.
    Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act. Psalm 37:3-7

    If I ever get a chance to buy SPP again, it will be a BIG order!!

    New york state does NOT have a definition of ammo. So if reloading components are banned under the safe act they would have to be named seperate in the ban it would say ammo, primers ,bullets, powder ,brass ect.. I was told by the NYSP that reloading components are NOT touched by the safe act.
    What the redneck sellers choose to ship up here is another story.
