Default Cali Ammo

Im here to ask a question, and see if info i was given was fud.

Is it true that in California you can only have 1000 rounds of any particular caliber of ammo?

I was told this by someone that usually has good info, but I cant find any regulations on this.

any guidance on regulations or laws relating to this would be great.

I think many would laugh at 1000 round limit

there is a limit on black powder that you can have (5lbs I think), not aware of a smokeless powder limit. And I do remember reading about a primer limit once but not sure what it was.

Never heard of a round limit, but remember, if you get into any legal trouble at and have more then 2 rounds in Calif, you have a arsenal.

When does the current legislative session end? Won't be able to answer until then.

But we keep giving them ideas here, don't we??

Fire code is the real issue. But it's still not a true limit, just things you have to change as you store powder and primers.
At any given time I have between 5-8k rounds of loaded ammo, 30-40 pounds of powder, and 5-10k primers
The variation is due to shooting competition. I use over 1000 projectiles and 16 pounds of powder in a year for one rifle.

I agreed to divide my ammo, powder, and primer stash among my fifty closest friends so I wouldn't get into trouble.

NOT!

If I can't come here for real info, then where to go. Ammo hoarders anonymous. We sure can't get good info from gun shops. I guess stilly has all the answers.

I just tossed out six 55 gallon drums of empty shotgun shell hulls and have over 80,000 rounds of 22 ammo so I hope there isn't a limit.

112 grains per round for 1000. Now that's a boomer.

No limit on how much loaded ammo you can have in CA.

You could've made Christmas lights out of those and sold them for charity or donations to CGF here.


I think there was a fire code thing about it depending on the size of your living quarters, but I'm not sure if that was based on apartments or houses, but I think you're fine as a private owner. See Librarian's post in #6:

Q: What did the progressive reloading press of any color (Except smart reloader because they SUCK!) say to the notion of there being a 1000 round limit?

A: Oops...

Id remove my original post to avoid fud spreading but since others have my post in their replies, not much i can do there.

at least others can see it and be informed as well.

Don't be concerned about removing your posts, you were just getting ribbed by some of us in good fun. As far as who gave you the incorrect information, I refer to the quote from the great W.C. Fields:

"Never give a sucker an even break, or smarten up a chump."

Let him (or her) believe what they want.

I live in a rural area. A few years ago a guy in the area was arguing with his wife. She got pissed that he got mad and went outside and damaged some of the plants around the property and called the Sheriff. She told them he had Black Powder in the barn.

They dispatched half the department and a helicopter. Huge scene at night. They took the husband into custody and seized his one pound of Black Powder. Next day the Sheriff says the husband did nothing wrong. He is free to damage his own plants if he wants and there is no law against having Black Powder, but they were called with a potentiality dangerous situation and had to respond accordingly.

He also said there is really no PC that limits how much powder someone may have, but there are health and safety code limits, that if even had been exceeded he would not arrest for nor seize the powder.
