Well I called Midway USA today and asked if I could place an order for ammo and was told no. It seems Rochester, Yonkers and NYC do not allow mail order shipment of ammo. Seems I am in a oppressive city in the People's Republic. Yikes.
What exactly are you trying to order? (I know you said wadcutters.)

If it's a product that is not explicitly illegal to possess in Rochester and there are simply "shipping restrictions" then just have it shipped to a friends house who is outside the city.

What a stupid rule.

Anyway, I've done some searching and I can't find any reference to specific prohibitions on ammo. There are a few things, like night-vision and crank-fire devices, that are specifically restricted in Rochester but I can't find any real reference to ammunition restrictions.

It's probably a lot like the trouble that I went through to get my Encore shipped here. There are no restrictions really, but everyone thinks that there are (or might be), so they are playing CYA.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
