I bring back gun powder without any problem, but you might ask on your way over if there are any restrictions as to quantity.

you could try asking on CGN , or maybe ask at cbsa . What about shopping at Marstar or Tenda . There,s actually a cbsa office not far from my place . I been tempted just to walk in and ask one day . I,ve been in there once before and they treated me very well and were very helpful . But still a scary place ha ha

Basically without export forms the answer is no.
Lots of info on CGN forum.

As it is right now, it is illegal for a non US resident to buy and transport guns and/or ammunition. (You can buy and export a gun through a legal licensed gun dealer...they will export it for you, you can't truck it around, or have it on your person or in your possession.)

If you go to Walmart or any gun store and buy a few bricks of 22's or what ever, and then head for the border, you will be considered a terrorist. Period. If someone rat's you out, and Johnny Law gets you, then it gets real interesting. The law will turn you over to Homeland Security. Reread the first sentence....especially the last 6 words.

There are a half dozen or so exemptions, only two really apply to the average joe.

1. If you have proof of residency in the US for at least 90 days. (And of course that is legal residency, or you'll have two strike against you when your caught.)
2. A valid US State issued hunting licence or permit.
3. A police or law officer in the States performing their duty.
4. If you are INVITED to a shooting competition. (Can't just show up to show the locals how it's done.)
The other two are along the lines of #3 and #4, I just can't recall off the top of my head.

Check the RCMP web site, it also spells out the rules.

6 months ago when I was asked to attend the secondary at Sarnia, I asked pretty much the same question to one of the people searching my vehicle. (The question didn't seem to raise any concerns, they were more worried about the running security camera and if it recorded sounds/voices.) The answer kind of surprised me, ammo isn't a biggie coming into Canada. (22's, shotgun shells etc. NOT mortars and missiles.) The attitude was that is a US law, not up to us to enforce it. So if you get over the border, your likely ok...if the attitude hasn't changed. Not something I would count on.

Don't kid yourself though, ammo in your possession, while in the States, with no exemptions, makes you a criminal.
Please don't take my word for it...look it up!!
