Are there Federal, or other such laws restricting the amount of ammunition that an individual is allowed to possess at any given time? If so, is the figure based on total ammo, or total per caliber? If not, just tell me to STFU and buy as much ammo as I want [:)]

I think there is only a certain amount of powder you are allowed to transport. Never heard of limit on ammo. Probably is, but I never heard of it.

The Uniform Fire Code, which most cities have adopted, places limits on powder and primers. There is no limit set for loaded small arms ammunition.

What EOD said except there are some jurisdictions that do restrict the amount of loaded ammo that may be stored in both business and residential structures. They may also require a permit to store the ammo.

While there may not be a federal law, check your local state laws. Here in MA I beleive the limit is 10,000rnds of loaded ammuniton.

I believe there is a limit of 10,000 primers per residence, but you can transfer 20,000 (figure that out). But not any laws regarding how much ammo you can have, that I'm aware of.

could they say, well with all that ammo is the powder and the primers inside thus making it against the law?

No, the Code specifically states that loaded small arms ammunition is a category by itself and that there is no limit on storage. The reason is that small arms ammunition does not present a hazard to firefighters in a fire. Their normal turnout gear provides sufficient protection.

I live in a very rural area in the mountains. Local fire protection is by the CDF (California dept of forestry). I went down to the local station house one day and spoke to the capitain in charge about storage of powder, primers and loaded ammo. He aked how much I had (it was substantially more than mentioned in this thread), and if it was in the same room as my firearms. He seemed unconcerned about the amount, only that it was stored properly. He said they'd save the room with the guns [:)]
