I decided to post this update, rather than continue the original thread with Ranting's nonsense in it. The italicized portion is the original post. The update is as follows: I received the two certificates from Ottawa this morning. I will forward them to Reloading International. The US still has to approve the export. The timeline seems to be on track for the end of March

The purchase is for 750 Speer 70 gr. TNT bullets.

---

I don't think that any Canadians or other non US citizens have ordered from this company. I decided to order some bullets from them to see how the process works. The company is in Oregon. http://www.reloadinginternational.com

The Process

It starts the same as any Internets order. Pick your poison. Pay. Transactions are in USD.

After you've finished paying, you receive an email. You print three documents.

1. An application to import into Canada. This is a CDN government form. It comes to you filled out. All you have to do is review the document for correctness, sign and date it.
2. End use statement. This is a declaration, attesting that you are importing them for your own use and not for resale or to be given away. This must be signed and dated.
3. Purchase order. What you ordered. This is signed and dated.

You place the signed forms in an envelope and mail them to Ottawa.

Within 7 to 10 days, you will receive the International Import Certificate as a PDF via email. Forward the email with the PDF attachments to Reloading International. Once they receive the documents, they apply for an export permit. That takes 7 to 10 days.

When they get the export permit back from Washington (or wherever), the bullets will be shipped to you.

My Order All prices rounded off

Speer 6mm - 70 gr HP - 750 bulk pack

Cost of bullets - $102 USD
Cost of export lic. - $10 USD (10% of order price)
Cost to ship - $57 USD

Total (rounded) $170 USD or $221 CDN Taxes will add $15 CDN
Grand Total - $236 CDN or $31 CDN and change per 100.

I couldn't find these bullets in Canada. That's why I ordered them. It is a viable option for any bullet that may be difficult or impossible to get here.

I did find 75 gr. Speer bullets, but no bulk packs. The cost up here for them is $30.49/100. I multiplied the price by 7.5 (750 / 100) and it came to $228.68. It may be cheaper than this, if Speer bulk packs sold here, but couldn't find anything, so I went with the closest I could find.

Comparison: Buying in Canada

Cost of Bullets $229 CDN
13% HST - $30 CDN
Cost to ship - $21 (4.5 kg via Canada Post)
Grand Total - $280 CDN

Saving are $44 CDN.

The savings aren't huge, but they are there. They have a lot of bullets, but it doesn't matter what the price is if you cannot get your favourite hunting, target or varmint bullet here. I can also get my bullet jackets there - Sierra or J4. They have lots of stuff on their site, including reloading dies, brass and reloading accessories. Depending on what you need, it may be worth a look.

So, how long do I wait? 10 days for Canada to approve the import permit. 10 days for the US to approve the export permit. 7 days for shipping. If these times are accurate, I should have them by the end of March.

Everything has been sent to RI as of noon today.

So far, everything has gone smoothly. In Canada, the first two or three months of the year can be the worst for getting reloading supplies. The annual price hikes come into effect. Store selloffs to reduce stock for income tax and make room for this years stuff can make it harder to order things.

On Friday, I received an email saying that they should get the export forms shortly. I am hoping that my order ships sometime this week.

My order has shipped. It looks like a 6 to 7 week process.

WV, Thank God!
Dang! No wonder you make your own. That'd drive me to living off cast, I think.


"Want" is my price guide.

I wanted to try it. They have a nice selection of bullets and the prices are good, even with the high US dollar and shipping. It is something that I will do in the future, but only with bullets that I do not need immediately. If I lived in the States, I would probably check them out. Not having to bother with export permits and international postage would make RI even more attractive.
