    I was thinking about the Dillon 1050 with that KISS mod from europe, looks like you could really make rounds quickly with that set up.
    If you do, find a niche. You won't make money on 9/40/45. Too much competition to make it. Stick with the hard to find or cult calibers like 41 Magnum, affordable 460 and 500 S&W Mags, and so on. Obsolete calibers work well too. I load for 351WSL. My profit margin will be 150%.

    The correct FFL for an ammunition manufacturer is a Type 06 FFL and cost $30 for three years, requires fingerprint and mugshot submissions. Ammunition is all ammunition including components. If you are not doing it for livelihood (which includes extra, ongoing money as in a PT job) then you don't need a FFL. If you are doing it on an ongoing basis for profit, you wil need an FFL. Period.

    I am in the process of getting my 06 FFL. I am starting a bullet casting and bullet swaging business and will be loading practice ammo for a few local police departments and also be loading obsolete ammo.

    Liability will run $4,000 per year minimum.
    Yes, you are quite correct. I mis-spoke. An ammunition manufacurer's license is indeed a type 06 FFL.

    I claim a "senior moment" as my defense. I held a type 06 FFL from 1976 to 1981. It's been a long time!

    I stand by my product liability insurance advice. This coverage is a necessity.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Agree, this is always good advice.

    I don't know about selling your over production ( whatever that is, I can't seem to ever load enough ammo ) Seems like it would be rather costly to get involved in for the small amount of ammo you might sell. The negatives far out weigh the positives in my book. But as to a good press, I love my Dillon 650 with the case feeder. I can really crank out quite a few rounds in a short time, and it has Dillon LIFETIME no nonsense guarantee.
