I think many jurisdictions would consider ammo (as well as powder, primers, etc) "Hazardous materials" and as such there may be regulations limiting the amount that you can store OR transport. Some states have a 25lb limit on how much you can transport at a time, for example.
I havent found anything in the utah code with a storage or transportation limit... all I found was something I wasnt aware of... which is that its a class B misdemeanor to store/transport gunpowder in any container which isnt clearly marked.
76-10-302. Marking of containers of explosives before transportation or storage.
Every person who knowingly leaves with or delivers to another, or to any express or railway company or other common carrier, or to any warehouse or storehouse, any package containing nitroglycerin, dynamite, guncotton, gunpowder, or other highly explosive compound, or any benzine, gasoline, phosphorus, or other highly inflammable substance, or any vitriol, sulphuric, nitric, carbolic, muriatic, or other dangerous acid, chemical or compound, to be handled, stored, shipped, or transported, without plainly marking and indicating on such package the name and nature of the contents thereof, is guilty of a class B misdemeanor.
Also found this on BCI's website, but no code to back it up:
It is unlawful, and a misdemeanor, when prohibited by local ordinance or law, to make or keep gunpowder, nitroglycerin or other highly explosive substances within a city or town, or to carry such substances through the streets.
** edit.. a keyword search for "gunpowder" in utah code only reveals the previously mentioned 76-10-302, and this notation that the state MAY regulate storage..
10-8-56. Storage of combustibles and explosives -- Use of lights -- Bonfires.
They may regulate or prevent the storage of gunpowder, tar, pitch, resin, coal, oil, gas, gasoline, benzine, turpentine, nitroglycerine, petroleum or any of the products thereof, and other combustible or explosive substances or materials, and the use of lights in stables, shops and other places, and the building of bonfires.
