    Hello guys:), I am new to this site and I just wanted to say hi to everyone and ask a question..........
    I would like to know about importing ammunition into Western Australia, specifically, 338 Lapua mag ammo. Does anyone know a supplier in the USA willing to export to Australia?
    I am able to obtain all the necessary paperwork (permits, B709’s, etc, etc) to satisfy Australian customs.
    The reason I am asking is of the very high cost of 338 Lap ammo.....I was quoted $391 for 40 rounds from an eastern states shop.
    Or perhaps someone could point to a good local supplier, either in WA or over East?
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for the welcome and the reply, I know I will enjoy this site and all its community has to offer:)

    I should have mentioned that I all ready load my own for the 338 Lap. I just thought it would be nice to have some factory ammo, as I have never fired the factory ammo in this calibre before.
