    Federal law only covers sales through Federally-licensed dealers. Private intra-state sales are left to the States. All interstate transfers of handguns have to go through an FFL.

    The ammunition restrictions would be pretty universal... not a lot of private ammo sales, except black-market, and nothing really touches that. (See: Drugs, War On.) I'm not sure, but I don't think I could legally sell my reloads... although, for liability reasons, I wouldn't even if it were legal.

      Q: Is a person who reloads ammunition required to be licensed as a manufacturer?

          Yes, if the person engages in the business of selling or distributing reloads for the purpose of livelihood and profit. No, if the person reloads only for personal use.

          [18 U.S.C. 922(a) (i) and 923(a), 27 CFR 478.41]

      'Course, a refined definition of "livelihood and profit" might make further distinctions.

      And 'course, that manufacturer's license may convey liability protection for ya as a reload manufacturer, that seems to have been a feature of some legislation that the NRA has promoted and achieved.
