Can RFD`s sell home loads ?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if an RFD can load up ammo for customers ? I`ve not seen any shops offering "shop" loaded ammo or any other smaller businesses in the UK offering their own brand.

There are RFD's that manufacture ammo tailored to customers rifles or requirements. I believe the loads need to be proof tested to see they comply with CIP standards.

That's so. If you ever see an HPS loaded TargetMaster round, there is a tiny letter stamped onto the primer cup, apparently showing the load having been proof house  tested and within SAAMI or CIP compliance.

Actually there is no requirement for this, the onus is on the manufacturer to ensure the product is safe. It's purely voluntary

It is a good idea to get it tested for compliance and it isn't difficult, however........to manufacture ammo for sale you have to be registered with the HSE as an explosives manufacturer, have the premises licensed and approved, have the required clearance between dwellings and have very very good liability insurance

I stand corrected. I don't mind being wrong sometimes ;)
