Powder storage limit?


Recommended Posts

Someone can fact check this but here is what I know it used to be.

20 pounds in a residence unless you have a box built to gubment specs and then it's a whopping 50 pounds.

Just throwing this out there, but don't powder sellers ship up to 48 lbs in 1 box? I would think a movable cardboard container would be much more dangerous than a larger quantity that is sitting in the floor or shelf of a persons abode!! The wooden structure is called a magazine btw, not to be confused with a CLIP!

I did a little researching after my post yesterday and not looking at local and state, but the feds pretty much limit powder to 20 pounds in a residence, 20-50 needs to be in a magazine. Funny you can transport up to 25K of primers in your vehicle, but only store 10K of primers in your residence.

Is smokeless powder designed for use in small arms ammunition subject to the explosives storage requirements?

 

Smokeless powders designed for use in small arms ammunition are exempt from regulation under 18 U.S.C. Chapter 40 and the regulations in 27 CFR Part 555. Packaging that readily identifies the smokeless powder as being designed for use in small arms ammunition may help in determining whether it is entitled to the exemption. Smokeless powder designed for use other than in small arms ammunition, and explosive products such as squibs, fireworks, theatrical special effects, or other articles that may contain smokeless powders, are regulated and must be stored pursuant to the regulations at 27 CFR 555, Subpart K – Storage.

It should be noted that persons engaged in the business of importing or manufacturing smokeless powder designed for any use must have a Federal explosives license. Further, importers of smokeless powder designed for use in small arms ammunition must also possess an ATF firearms importers license (Type 08 or 11); must register with ATF under the provisions of the Arms Export Control Act; and must submit (to ATF) and receive an approved ATF Form 6 – part I (5330.3A), Application and Permit for Importation of Firearms Ammunition and Implements of War.

thats all I need to read on this.  It’s in the faq and they can’t expect anyone reading faq to look up a regulation.  No limit

Then I'm screwed, I've got 110,000 primers and 55# of powder. Oh well.
