Please check this site for details of the ammo available, manufactured by the Governments 'Indian Ordinance Factory'.

Arms and Ammunition dealers are not allowed to import this ammo officially (I think). Hence, this is all that is available to us for a normal market price of Rs 70 to Rs 100 (aprox. USD 1.00 to 1.25) per round.
It is good ammo, more often than not it goes bang and makes a loud noise. I wonder why it is not used for target practice.
The government also allows impost of a very large quantity of ammo only for renowned shooters for practice and that too without paying any import duty.
