    I'm a new shooter and have plans to eventually attend the larger Grands out of state. Assuming I continue to use factory ammo, when traveling by air to a Grand, do I need to bring ammo with me? Or, is ammo normally redily available at the shoot (major brands)? For those of you who load your own and travel by air, what do you use to transport?

    As a practical matter, you can't travel by air with ammo. The limit I believe is 11 pounds of ammo, which amounts to only four or five boxes of shells.

    Any major shoot (state, zone, satellite grand, grand) that I've ever attended have shells for sale on site, and in many cases you can also find shells at retail outlets in the area of the shoot.

    Don't forget your credit cards and/or a big bag of money. Regards, Ed

    Ammo is plentiful at the Grand and the local Wal-Mart has pallets and pallets brought in for the shoot each year.

    There will be factory shells available at the Grand.

    They will be costly.

    Remember, all this info, including mine, is based on historical fact.

    We may be moving into different times in terms of shell availability and pricing.

    I think you can only fly with a maximum of 22 pounds of ammo.

    Barry,

    The max on most airlines is 11 pounds of ammunition in checked baggage. Some airlines, of course, don't allow any ammunition at all.
