    Mga pare ko: (My fellowmen:)

    1. Is it legal for us ordinary pinoys here to purchase reloading equipment and accessories, propellants, casings, primers and slugs? Can we legally do our own ammo loading / reloading?

    2. Where in manila can we buy reloading equipment and accessories, propellants, casings, primers and slugs? How much would these cost?

    3. How can we learn reloading? What literature is available here?

    4. Is it really cheaper to do our own reloading, vs buying ammo from gunstores? How much cheaper?

    Maraming salamat (Thank you).

    Gumagalang at umaasa, (Respecting [you] and hoping [for your answer])

    1. yes it is legal, you just have to register your machine sa FED.

    2. sorry, i live in cebu. but if our branch of stronghand here has a good selection, the manila branches will have better:)

    3. you can surf the net, or buy a reloading manual.

    4. in my experience, you can see savings if you cook your own slugs.

    1.yep you can own a reloading machine here in the philippines.

    2.just ask around baka may nagbebenta na ng mga reloading machines,
    or ask the old timers, yung mga nagsawa na sa shooting.
    sayang di mo inabot yung sa client ko, nabenta na.

    3. you can buy a manual or the machine comes with a manual.

    4. you asked "Is it really cheaper to do our own reloading, vs buying ammo from gunstores? How much cheaper?"

    Yes its cheaper but not that much, i-plus mo yung pagod at
    pawis mo at mga errors mo sa pag re-load kasi beginner ka pa
    lang sa reloading. Tingin ko bro mas mahal pa lalabas,
    mag-ipon ka na lang ng basyo at mag pa reload ka, wala pa hassle
    di ba?

    I also want to know a definitive answer to this question. If legal, perhaps I can send a few thousand to my friends via balikbayan box.

    Yes, a private individual can import basyo, provided:

    1. A permit is obtained from FED at Crame.

    2. The number of basyo should be limited for "personal consumption" only, not "commercial quantity". The interpretation of this depends on your connections sa Customs. They may interpret "commercial quantity" as 9 pieces of basyo, or "personal consumption" as a 40-foot van full of basyos, hehehe.

    Good luck!
