If I had the financial wherewithal, I'd open an ammunition store just across the Kalifornia border in OR, AZ, or NV. I'm willing to bet I could make a small fortune selling to people willing to drive an hour or so to buy ammunition without having to go through a background check.
Kind of sounds like a Wisconsin fireworks shop
Except it would be 3 - 5 hrs for anything other than OR for a major population center in CA to the border.
