    I was going to import some norinco ammo a few years back-even visited the factory, but the min order numbers and shipping issues just made it unpractical. was going to cost more to get it from the factory to the boat than to buy the ammo, then finding a dg ship that was coming strait to NZ without going via OZ did my head in.
    End of the day its there to import if someone has the cash but the NZ market is just to small for it to be cost effective V barnall etc when I looked into it- that may be different now

    Guns are not DG/Hazmat and are actually easier to ship than ammo.As far as GC is concerned, well I asked that question a while back and the answer was they have arrangements with other suppliers and there was no particular reason to bring in Norinco ammo at this time.A shame I think as Norinco can be good stuff end economical, but thats what I was told when I asked.

    I read years ago that Norinco ammo can't get here without going through Australia first, and the Australians won't let it dock their?

    Norinco ammo is still available in Canada....maybe the best way to import into NZ is to get in via Canada,might be something for importers to look into.

    NZ regularly imports ammo from overseas in shipping containers, both for sporting use and our military. Its routine. There is no restriction on their movement, and you don't need special "DG ships" either. Normal haz things apply only, as to separation on ships and licensed carriers (trucks -that's most of them) with standard DG paperwork. I doubt that Australian ports dont let them call there, they are in the business or working ships, and no one cares if the containers are staying on board the ship and going to NZ - if its not coming off the ship there, then its not entering Australia.

    Put it this way, I have heard the same argument from people about ADI powders not getting through to the USA, because NZ ports wont let them dock there on the way - which is rubbish.

    I could check with Australia there is some fascist sanction that the Aussies have against the Chinese ammo transiting their ports, you know what they are like about hating Asians. But in any event I could come up with a number of way getting a container here that doesn't need to call in Australia on the way from China.

    There is no special sea transport reason why you couldn't import a container of ammunition into NZ from China. If anyone wants to buy a container load from Norinco, I will help you organise the shipping.

    A cursory look through the Dept of Foreign Affairs does not indicate that military rifle ammunition is on their strategic good list so without considering it further it may only be a matter of getting a normal import permit.

    I might investigate this matter just for the hell of it. (Of course as soon as I ask a question about Chinese ammunition, I will never get a visa for the US ever again.)

    I do wounder how much is excuses by the small number who do import ammo to keep supplies down. A flood of cheap norinco wont be popular with established importers.
