The above list is for import by an arms dealer.It does not apply to an individual bringing in ammo on his license.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences.

Correct.

Is there any restriction regarding calibres as far as imports by individuals are concerned?

In case the individual is allowed to purchase 10 cartridges at a time and 25 per year, can they bring in 50 cartridges on return from abroad?

You can bring 50 cartridges of whatever caliber that is endorsed on your arms license, provided the license allows you to possess 50 cartridges at a time. If your license allows less than 50 cartridges to be possessed at a time, then please get that increased to 50 cartridges or more.

Hi friends

After reading the above posts from you Can I assume that I can bring back ammunition upto 50 rounds without hassles as long as I declare it at the customs RED channel and get it endorsed on my license???? I need 0.30 carbine ammunition which is not available anywhere and the last price I heard was around Rs.400-500 per round which is VERY expensive. Can someone also tell me the rate of Duty??? IS this duty based on the bill issued by the overseas seller?
