Does anyone know how much ammo you can bring with you?

To the previous poster I live in New York.

I think you have to ship ammo and weapon in seperate locked containers under the plane, if I'm not mistaken. Then again, I've never flown with a firearm, so I have no idea. That's just what I was told.

Negative, you can store it in the same case as your weapon. I have cut outs for my ammo boxes in mine!

Depends on the airline, some want them in separate bags/cases. Not all allow that.

Check with the airline FIRST before you show up at the airport. In all of them, the ammo must be in original boxes and not loose etc.

Something to look for is a hard plastic golf bag carrier. Can normally find them used and if they have the keys they lock. Otherwise a locksmith can make keys for them pretty easy.

Use foam in the bottom and top, and to wrap around the rifle on both ends. Put the rifle in a soft case then wrap.

Normally cheaper, they lock and does not scream "Gun". Can get up to three guns in them.
