    Fired brass is fine by post. Just don't do it with live primed brass, even if otherwise empty. It's a criminal offence, not just a civil matter!

    Sometimes fired cases take a detour for forensic inspection as the powder residues are picked up through routine mail screening. Someone kindly posted me 1 fired Grendel 6.5 case and it made a long detour. It eventually arrived with a nice letter saying what had been done to it.

    I have received spent brass through the post no problem, from a very helpful former member of this site (Brithunter - pity I haven't been able to keep in touch with him, as the only contact I had was via SD.)

    Done it a few times, I tell them what it is when they ask. Never had a problem.
