I was about to order some from Cabela's just now when I saw this:



ATTENTION: Residents of DE, DC, IL, MA, NY and OH please check your local laws for restrictions before ordering any ammunition products.



Anybody know what the story is with this?

from what i have heard that is only for items going to Columbus Ohio. It's just like that in IL, certain counties have made thier own law aside from the state law. I have never had the least bit of trouble getting mail order ammo

I was at the Lewis Center (southern Delaware County) post office earlier in the week and overheard one postal worker tell the other that ammo can't be shipped. I didn't question her on it because the line was out the door. Next time I'm in there, which should be Tuesday, I'll ask.

I hate to say anything without knowing for sure, but I don't believe you are allowed to ship
ammo or anything explosive through the US Postal Service. Ammo and such has to go
through a different shipper like UPS or FedEx. I think that there is a sign at our post office
that says it a felony.

I'm in Columbus and I've received bulk ammo from Natchez and Ammoman with no problems.

I was talking to a guy at work last week on the difficulty of finding XM193, and shipping ammo came up.
The guy seems like he knows what he's talking about on some things, but a goober on some others....

Anyway, he told me that you couldn't have more than 500 rounds shipped, in fact, he said you legaly couldn't purchase more than 500 rds per State law... though no one follows the law...

I looked through Chapter 29 of the ORC, and didn't see anything on it.

Is chapter 29 where we'll find all the gun related laws, or are there some spread out elsewhere?

Somebody better tell everyone that goes to the AIM Surplus warehouse in Middletown for crates of 7.62.

I just found this place: www.ammunitionstore.com

I'll probably drive up there from Columbus on Friday. That is, unless somebody can tell me of a similar store closer to home.

Aim Surplus is closer to Columbus than the Ammunition Store by about an hour.

True, but according to their website, their selection of ammo is pretty paltry.
