Ammunition Regulation in Kansas

Posted on August 6, 2015

Kansas law prohibits possessing, manufacturing, causing to be manufactured, selling, offering for sale, lending, purchasing or giving away any cartridge which can be fired by a handgun and which has a plastic-coated bullet that has a core of less than 60% lead by weight.1

Kansas law does not:

  • Impose a minimum age for the purchase or possession of ammunition (although federal law applies);
  • Require sellers of ammunition to maintain a record of the purchasers;
  • Require a license for the purchase or possession of ammunition; or
  • Require a license to sell ammunition.
