I have about 30,000 rounds of ammo in Connecticut that I want to get down here to Georgia. I’m thinking of flying up and renting a U-Haul to bring it down here. My wife has some other items I need to bring down anyway.

What if any laws or regulations do I need to be concerned about?

Most of the ammo is .45ACP and 9mm but runs the full range of .22 up to .50 cal.

Thanks
Ray

And all this time I thought the military was causing the .45ACP shortage. :)

You gonna set a home based ammo sales business maybe specializing in .45ACP? :)

legal to transport but something tells me that if that cache is discovered you are gonna be a little late getting back.
That’s what I'm afraid of.

I’ve been researching online but have yet to find a clear and concise answer as to what the actual laws are about transporting a large quantity of ammo like this.

My brother in-law was an avid shooter and somewhat of a hoarder.

:lol: Nope, but it will be a long time before I ever have to purchase ammo or worry about a shortage, if ever. 8)

There are enough bad law enforcement officers and greedy, corrupt, media-whore-attention-seeking public officials in various jurisdictions along your path that IF any of them found out about your cargo, you may well have it confiscated.

Then the burden will be on you to hire a local attorney, travel up there a dozen or more times for various meetings and court appearances, and spend tens of thousands of dollars to try to get your own property back.

So if I were you, I'd drive really carefully, take no detours, don't stop except for gas and food along the highway, and get out of the northeastern socialist states as quickly as possible. Places like NY, MA, and NJ aren't really in the United States, and the rule of law does not apply there. They are more like little third-world Chiefdoms.

P.S. Don't forget that magazines over 10 or 15 rounds are banned in some states.
Don't forget that hollowpoint pistol ammo is illegal in New Jersey (maybe just illegal to carry... not transport... not sure about that).

Don't forget that if your are travelling through New York and especially New Jersey, they have prohibitions on HP ammo. (Maybe Maryland too.) You'd really, really have problems with that much were you to be stopped.

30K rounds ain't much.....it is heavy, but not bulky. We get 50K rounds delivered from Georgia Arms in the back of a regular cargo van, and they usually have ammo for other deliveries as well....
Not sure what else you have to bring back though....

Would they fit in the front trunk of an 87 Fiero?

If you decide to sell any of the 9mm, how about hooking up a neighbor...... :) :righton:

I’m thinking that would be cost prohibitive as compared to transporting it myself.

Hi there neighbor…not sure what I’m going to do yet….not sure if it’s worth the risk. I may just see if I can find a gun shop up there that would want a good deal.

How about shipping it by freight?

In my continued research I've discovered that a shipment of more than 5,000 rounds is considered a Hazardous Material shipment and can only be done by someone who is certified to handle such a shipment.

Why can’t anything be easy? :x

Then make it 2 shipments.
