Zygmunt wrote:But just stopping an individual who is determined to make a bomb from buying the powder is a slight deterrent. So what if he has to buy 2,000 rounds (in small purchases, in different shops); He'll buy the 2,000 rounds, pull the bullets, salvage the primers, and get the powder that way.
Zygmunt wrote:Britain certainly had a terrorist problem for years, but the IRA never used smokeless propellants in its IEDs - they got Semtex from Libya, and dynamite from the US, and made their own with fertilizer and fuel.
Zygmunt wrote:The other answer I've had to the question is that handloaders may use bullets which would contravene the Geneva convention on projectiles, eg JHPs. Since most Israeli shooters may find themselves in combat at some point, maybe the Israelis are paranoid that some handloaded "not suitable for combat" ammunition would find its way to the front, and then complaints would be made to the UN.
