I've been considering ordering a case of 223 ammo for plinking with friends, and every online dealer that carries cheap Russian crap says you have to be 21 to order. Is there any reason why they prohibit sales of rifle ammo to people under 21?

When I was a kid, this was a free country. We would ride our bikes down to the feed store in 1980 and buy all the ammo we needed just before hunting season or for target practice. We could buy spray paint, knives, fire works, all at the age of 12. No issues.

Some idiots decided to shoot up some schools.

That's what happened.

There's no law saying you have to be 21.

many states have laws prohibiting persons under 21 from purchasing handgun ammunition.

rifle rounds such as 5.56/.223 could be considered "handgun ammunition" depending on how the law is written (it is illegal to sell ammunition to a person under 21 that is intended for use in a handgun vs. can be fired from a handgun) and the dealer's interpretation since AR pistols are common firearms.

My post was less about the law and more about public perception.

Times have changed.

Never did I imply that it made sense! When you can no longer sue mcdonlds for making you fat or for making hot coffee then that's when you'll be able to buy ammo at 18:-)
