How many pellets we can import at a time? I am planning to bring 5 tins (500 pellets each). Please inform me if there are any restrictions?

Thanks,
Abhishek

Abhishek - Depends on your port of entry and the mood of men in white.

South Airports especially Chennai and Bangalore are prone to be confiscated as all bags are throughly rechecked through the scanners before you collect them from the conveyor belt.

Hazarika - Welcome on board.

I am sure the threads under Air Guns will give you full in sights on importing Pellets.

Currently there is NO RIGHT or WRONG answers for importing pellets.

There are several cases were Pellets that cleared by customs when its carried in check in luggages or through Courier. Also you can find comments from members whos pellet consignments that got stuck with Men in White.
