Lightbulb Type 06 FFL (ammunition manufacturer) info needed

I have requested all forms that apparently are required to apply for this license, but my DOJ ATF search has netted zero specific data on what is required to correctly do this.

Questions I have:

What standard is required for the ammunition made? (Quality control, etc)

What insurance is required/recommended?

What security requirements are needed for the shop and storage areas?

Are periodic samples needed to be sent to a test lab/underwriter?

and many more questions, but that is a start.

And link guidance would be helpful and appreciated as well as first hand experience.

Thanks in advance,

No standards are REQUIRED. That's one of the problems with reloads.
No insurance is REQUIRED except what you feel is necessary to protect yourself.
No security is required except... see above.
No testing is required.

Basically you're on your own to manufacture whatever you want, to whatever standard you deem appropriate. Just be sure you have lots of liability insurance to protect yourself and your assets.
