  • import ammo into US

    IS there a way toi import "sporting ammunition" into the US from China?? Have got leads to the source but I know there is a executive order against CHina on import of weapons! but ammunition like .223 and 308 or .45ACP .. I wonder if we can still import them as SPorting ammo.

    I have a funny feeling that those persons that made a living importing ammo from China before the ban would have researched this thoroughly before walking away from their livelihoods...

      It would be nice if someone found a way.....308, at this gun show, was over $600.00 for a 1000 rounds.

          I was under the impression that only Norinco was the only company from mainland China that was baned. Since they are the primary Chinese arms manufacture that pretty much killed the cheap Chinese ammo and weapons imports. I could be wrong, so if someone else has better info, please speak up.

              Not true Norinco FMJ is coming back into the market. The prices however make softpoint and HP look better. Saw it at the last gunshow. Both the old style Yellow Box is being imported and their new brownish copper box = Newer brand.

                Don't spread rumors... someone may believe them. I don't think you saw any new Norinco ammo... it is not being imported. All imports of guns/ammo from China were banned by executive order in 1994. Only "non-combat" shotguns are allowed to be imported. If you saw some it was either old or "unofficially" (read: Illegaly) imported...

                  I got the pictures but don't know how to share them with you. Two different vendors and in case you haven't figured it out, I don't lie so this is what I was told and shared last year, and it proved to be true this year.

                    IT'S NOT TRUE. YOU CAN NOT LEGALLY IMPORT IT. SHOW ME ONE SELLER THAT HAS IT AVAILABLE ONLINE. Who are these vendors?

                    That brownish box with copper color writing, etc is not new. It has been around a decade.

                    Norinco is NOT being imported currently. I have a pallet of it here but just because I bring it to a show and sell some it doesn't mean that it is currently inbound.

                      Tiananmen disrupted the U.S.-China trade relationship, and U.S. investors' interest in China dropped dramatically. The U.S. Government also responded to the political repression by suspending certain trade and investment programs on June 5 and 20, 1989. Some sanctions were legislated; others were executive actions. Examples include:

                      Munitions List Exports--subject to certain exceptions, no licenses may be issued for the export of any defense article on the U.S. Munitions List. This restriction may be waived upon a presidential national interest determination [note: “Munitions” seems to be defined here as all firearms except “non-combat” shotguns and black powder guns, and all ammunition and components, except for shotgun shells].

                        SO, that pretty much covers all ammunitions except 12 gauage??

                        Man! that sucks though..... got source to get all the 308 and 223 we want! but I guess that pretty much seals the case!

                            All I can tell you is what the dealers both said. They are getting it in, the price is on par with current over the counter Winchester white box, so why purchase a non reloadable steel case ammo for the same price. It's not steel core or anything exotic.

                            Two shows back when china and the US were in talks about North Korea it was said there was an agreement made that would allow ammo trades to open back up again. I can't prove what I was told, but do have the pictures from the last show and nobod varried from what was said.

                            A few months back there was another post about some ammo coming in and it sounded just like what was described. If you want I can download the images from my phone but will then need to talk to the admins about where these images are to be e-mailed.

                            Doesn't bother me if you believe or not I am just the messenger and it appears what was stated is true.

                              it's not true... I import ammo, I sell ammo... it's not true. Simply read the import regs... plain as day.
