    I believe it is a state and city based issue.
    In ma I think you are limited to 10,000 rnds and 3 lbs of powder.

    I don't think there is a limit on ammo for KY, I would imagine maybe a limit on powder??

    I think the key part of this is that they are Illegals!

    Safety, storage, cost, and common sense.

    Find your own balance.

    Some guys buy 2 tags each hunting season,

    a bullet for each tag, and never

    have a spare round their whole lives.

    It's America, and I know I'm not a judge,

    because I'm not making enough money...

    A person in the US illegally may not lawfully purchase or possess firearms or ammunition. THAT was the Federal law they broke. For lawful residents of the US, there IS no limit. Some municipal fire codes may limit MASS quantities of powder and ammo.

    Each round of ammunition is a separate offense for an Illegal Alien. They may not possess either.

    I can pretty much guarantee the ammo was headed SOUTH not North. The cartels must resupply regularly. They do not shoot with any degree of accuracy.

    Actually, here in MA, we're not limited to how much we can own, rather how much we can store.

    10,000 rds of centerfire

    10,000 rds of rimfire

    5,000 rds for shotguns

    1,000 caps or other small arms primers

    not more that 16 pounds of smokeless propellent

    not more that 2 pounds of black powder

    Accoring to 527 CMR 13.04(1)(e)

    However, 527 CMR 13.04(2) allows for much great quantities to private individuals with "permits obtained from the head of the local fire department", though, I'm sure you have to comply with many fire safety regulations.

    Yep! And damn proud of it.... well, not really. Boston blows. I work in Boston, near a bunch of bars and clubs.... on the overnight shift, so I get plenty of entertainment from the drunks and half naked club chics.
