Default Where Can i find the CPC definition of "ammunition"?

I found the definition in the 2008 penal code but would like to see something more recent. But with the reorginization of all the weapons offenses a few years back I simply cannot find the definition of ammunition in a 2012 Penal code.

See the wiki -- http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/Am...d_Black_Powder and http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/Fe...and_ammunition

Other than the things prohibited to prohibited persons, and the inoperative stiff from the enjoined AB 962, CA Penal Code doesn't define 'ammunition'.

Ask CA law questions in the How CA Laws Apply to/Affect Me Forum
- most questions that start 'Is it legal ...' go there.

As Librarian pointed out, there is no global definition of "Ammunition" in the Penal Code.

There is a very limited definition of that term, applicable to three code sections only, in Penal Code section 16150. Here is the text:
"(a) As used in Section 30300, "ammunition" means handgun
ammunition as defined in Section 16650.
(b) As used in subdivision (a) of Section 30305 and in Section
30306, "ammunition" includes, but is not limited to, any bullet,
cartridge, magazine, clip, speed loader, autoloader, or projectile
capable of being fired from a firearm with a deadly consequence.
"Ammunition" does not include blanks."
There is also a section defining "Handgun Ammunition" in section 16650. Here is the text:
"(a) As used in this part, "handgun ammunition" means
ammunition principally for use in pistols, revolvers, and other
firearms capable of being concealed upon the person, notwithstanding
that the ammunition may also be used in some rifles.
(b) As used in Section 30312 and in Article 3 (commencing with
Section 30345) of Chapter 1 of Division 10 of Title 4, "handgun
ammunition" does not include either of the following:
(1) Ammunition designed and intended to be used in an antique
firearm.
(2) Blanks."
