Why care about PayPal? Lots of places sell ammo by credit card, deal with them instead.

I buy various reloading dies and related things off ebay and pay by paypal all the time. I've never had a problem. However, ebay does not list any ammo or components.

Exactly! Just use a credit card.

Ebay and PayPal are sister companies. If I recall correctly, you can't buy anything on Ebay which is required in firing a firearm. For example you can't use PayPal or Ebay to buy or sell reloading components, parts such as firing pins. You can use PayPal to pay for holsters, grips, molds etc.

Hope this helps.
