[quote=“DrSchmittCSAEOD”]Oil inerting is not a reliable way to inert a primer. Many types of primers have a top seal. German commercial ammo used to have an “oil proof” label on them as a selling point.
Pray that the autorities both going out there and beyond believe you and do not put you to the test.
That would be most unpleasant.
The only sure way is to snap them and even then if you do not soak the shell in solvent and wash fully the bomb dogs can smell the burnt powder.
Posting LIVE primers is a FEDERAL felony in the USA. I doubt that the UK looks on it with any lesser light.
Good Luck ![/quote]
I agree, primer deactivation is a whole subject in its own right worthy of more discussion. I now do one week with vinegar but its largely untested. based on advice from here. Posting to the US from europe is very risky. If they see an anomoly they could extradite you, zero tollerance.
