    Default Buying Bullets and brass for reloading from the US

    Does anyone know if a Canadian can bring back Bullets and brass from the US, do you have to have a PAL to possess these.

    I want to order some bullets for my 375 Winchester they are half price in the US and even with delivery to my parents in Florida it have the cost of Canada.

    Dad would ship them to me when he gets back to NB with the other stuff I have ordered.

    It used to be OK...but since 9/11 it's become very difficult. As an alien on US soil you can't be in position with much in the way of ammunition or gun related items.

    Crossing the border is fine, but if to get pulled over before you get to the bridge...lots of problems.

    Q4. I want to buy parts in the US for my firearm and import them into Canada.

    A4. The US controls on the export of firearms extends to parts also. For small orders worth less than US$100.00 the US Department of State allows an exemption from the export licence. This exemption, however, does not cover ‘significant’ parts which includes; barrels, slides, cylinders, bolts, frames and receivers. It should be noted that there is no equivalent exemption offered by the Department of Commerce for shotgun parts. Further, there is no exemption for ammunition or ammunition components. Canadian importers should follow the procedure outlined in Q1 (above) to import parts not exempted.

    SO CBSA has no issue with bringing ammo across the border and lists quantities:


    Item

    Column 1
    Explosive

    Column 2
    Quantity


    1. Model rocket motors that each have a maximum total impulse of 40 newton-seconds (NFPA alpha designations A to E, as indicated on the motor or its packaging) 6, and
    2. Avalanche airbag systems 3, and
    3. Small arms cartridges 5 000, and
    4. Percussion caps (primers) for small arms cartridges 5 000, and
    5. Empty primed small arms cartridge cases 5 000, and
    6. Black powder and hazard category PE 1 black powder substitutes 8 kg, in containers of 500 g or less, and
    7. Smokeless powder and hazard category PE 3 black powder substitutes 8 kg, in containers of 4 kg or less

    Notes:
    •Blank cartridges are defined as small arms cartridges.
    •Inert/dummy articles and substances (empty of all explosives, such as brass, lead bullets, replicas of explosive articles, etc.) are not regulated under the Explosives Act and no permit from NRCan is required. However, any of the so-called "deactivated", "inert" or "dummy" grenades (or similar articles) made with parts or components of real grenades, will require an import or export permit from Global Affairs Canada (GAC). For an in transit movement by an individual, an import and export permit from GAC is required.
    •Certain types of ammunition are referred to as being "caseless" since they do not have a cartridge. This type of ammunition requires an import, export or in transit permit from NRCan.
    •Presentation of a Canadian Firearms Licence is not necessary to import ammunition.
    •Each individual 18 years of age and over may claim the above exemptions.
    •Canadians must follow U.S. Federal and state laws when purchasing ammunition in the U.S. For more information see: U.S. Regulations for Non-residents Purchasing and Importing Firearms and Ammunition.

    However, as I have discovered some shotgun reloading parts were restricted. They have since been unlisted from restrictions list (under Trump and CETT), hence why I can cross the border and get Ballistic Products (shotgun reloading), for half the cost of Montreal supplier who I was getting from ReLoadX

    Do you have a site for that. I’d be interested in the changes.
