And if you have never started a business, my basic advice is:

1) It will take you twice as much start up money as you think you will need. Maybe even more.

2) Don't expect to make 1 cent for the first year.

Look, step 1 is to get an FFL06. That alone should prove an interesting challenge.

Also, remember that commercial-grade autodrive presses are ~$12k each (minimum), and that you will need to purchase components in real bulk to make your ammo price competitive. I would not walk into this with less than $100k of funding, minimum, and I suspect $200k would be much more sensible. Undercapitalizing is how business fail to launch.

Erwo. Yes. I understand Step one.. and of course this will be under a business name that's been formed in MD. I hear you on the start up case, and the press. I have been piecing together material sources direct from manufacturers. I appreciate the input.. keep it coming boss
