importing ammo into US
 
I am filling out ATF form 6NIA to bring rifles to Texas to hunt. I have done this in past but this time will be bringing handloaded ammo. For "name and address of manufacturer", would I write "handloaded"?
Thanks
Vance

Ive put the bullet manufacturer info down
They havent really cared when ive crossed
they may check to make sure that the number is correct
If your worried put them in a hornady box

Many people save factory boxes that match the head stamp on the cases, and carry the ammunition in those when going to foreign countries.

ammo into US
 
Thanks fellas.
The handloads in question are with lapua brass. Don't have any lapua factory ammo boxes on hand.

Last few times I went across, I just put my name and address as the manufacturer for my hand loads with no issue.

When I went across I had nothing but handload ammo.In the space on the US temp import sheet for ammunition, I just put " see attached list " because I had a couple different center fires and a couple rimfires. On a seperate sheet I just neatly wrote down "500 --223 rem -- 50 gr --hornady vmax -- handload " and in large print at the top of the page " All center fire ammo handloads by me ". They actually never ever checked the ammo at all, for amount or brand.

I cross the border all summer long. Likely once a week to shoot.
All my guns are custom as well at the ammo.
List it as hand loaded by you, list your address, the caliber and bullet type and weight. Will be no problem at all.
If you want send me your number and I can send you a pick of my 6INA
They are really good at the border crossings.

ATF approval granted
 
Thanks for the advice guys. Got the ATF approval back in just under 10 business days.
Impressive turnaround time.
