The subject of mailing inert cases between the USA and Canada has come up on a shooting forum that I visit. And this is not the first time.
So, what is the real story? Can I send an inert case and bullet thru the USPS to Canada? Can a Canadian collector do the same in return?
I know shooters in Canada who would like to get a couple of shooting type cases from me in trade for some that I want. But, on both sides of the line we’re afraid that we would be breaking the law in light of Canada Post’s recent ruling regarding inert munitions. Questions to both the USPS and Canada Post go unanswered. At best we’re told, “I’m not sure” or “I think it’s OK but I’m not positive.”
