Whilst I welcome BASC's input, and as a member believe it shows that BASC gives far more than just insurance, I am confused!
What with Royal Mail "letter post" and Parcelfore are their policies regarding non-expanding bullets empty cartridge cases. I see that one refers to "ammunition components" for example in its prohibitions.
Reduced to absurdity a block of lead and a few blocks of beeswax....being sent in one package to a bullet caster....could be "ammunition components".
But my real need is to get clarification on unprimed cartridge cases. Be they brass rifle cases or plastic or paper shot gun cases all being the simple case alone UNPRIMED. I see no greater hazard from them than from brass plumber's tap fittings...either with or without their plastic or waxed paper fibre washers.
Whilst we have tried to influence better language sometimes the message has not been received. It appears that components are viewed as a problem that can cause parcels to be stopped, opened and investigated to ensure complience with the explosives prohibition so they have chosen to ban all components of ammunition even though empty cases (for example) are not explosive.
