Default Manufacturing Ammo

I am a little confused by the charges levied on the Arizona engineer charged with manufacturing ammo without a license. The LV shooter had some of his ammo with name, address and fingerprints on it. Anyone know the details surrounding this? Seems odd that someone would "manufacture" AP. Think he really manufactured AP rounds or was just selling reloads? The press is usually not very good at describing anything associated with arms and ammunition.

You cannot reload and sell ammo without a federal firearms license.

That is good to know. I could have bought reloaded ammo from a coworker years ago but didn't trust reloads. Since he has been dead for years guess he won't be prosecuted. :-)

...but you can give it away, though, right? To me, the government would have to prove he sold it vs gave it away. (Not supporting sharing reloads though, I only risk my own neck)

I think he already admitted to selling it.

My guess is that he was selling reloads and was using surplus military bullets w/steel core.

The press made it sound like he was committing the crime of making armor piercing bullets while it really is a case of just making any ammo for sale without the FFL. The government does not like losing out on the revenue.

When you cross the line of what you should be doing, this is what can happen.

If I read that correctly, it is illegal to reload using bullets with the steel penetrator like the commonly available green tips?
