    Just thinking outside the box, but there wouldn't be any problem if you posted them from Germany to yourself in the UK.

    not sure about regulations on flights etc.....

    Not sure about hand luggage and bullets Lee, but the airline regs on loaded rounds insist they are in a locked box in your hold luggage. The definitely will not be a problem doing it that way. Logically you should be able to take bullets in hand luggage, nothing dangerous about them, but I bet you meet some ignorant security guy who insists on confiscating them just in case.
    So much to learn and so little time left

    in a word NO you can't, hold luggage only im afraid, it's not a case of some security guard being ignorant it's eu regs all guns ammo etc must be in locked boxes/cases and transported in hold (and yes I do work at an airport but not in security)

    Bullets are not Ammo. They are simple lumps of lead or copper which have no cartridge and no powder and can do no damage to anything. It's madness that airlines will not take bullets. No different to taking a square lump of metal on board.

    You try killing someone with a bullet that is not loaded.
