Shortly after I got into reloading i was asked by a friend of my dad's to reload some ammo for him. I thought about it for a little while and decided I did not want the responsibily. The only person I freely give hand loads to his my dad and that doesn't happen very often.

Depends on the state. In KS it is illegal, but not in MO.
I could make a list of a bunch of guns i have, or "have", or wish I had. Why would one feel compelled to provide that infornation freely? Do you feel the need to show off? Is it some immature game of oneupsmanship?

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

It don't depend on the state-I quoted federal law as per BATFE regulations. They require you to have a ammo manufacturer's license.

Never sell reloaded ammo without a license. What works in your firearm, may not work in mine. I like my body and firearms too much to trust the reloads of others who may not have the experience.

Gents- listen to the BEAR. The Feds want their TAX DOLLARS. Every maker of ammo or components pays a FEDERAL EXCISE TAX on what they make- as do gun manufacturers. State law may be more restrictive than Fed, but not less restrictive. If you are reloading and selling, you need a license from the Feds.

Ask yoursself- you REALLY want to tangle with the IRS?
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

thanks everyone for the advice.
