.I did not find anything related in your question.

although it just stated that a weapon purchased from a non resident can purchase a long gun, as long as it is legal in your home state

or a pistol in same as above shipped to a FFL

??? did not see ammo

call DPS


hopefully someone else might know

You can bring ammo with you in your checked baggage up to 300 rounds i did this not 2 months ago along with my kimber I also brought back 600 rounds between two suitcases one for my wife and one for me that i bought with an out of state license

Found at TSA: Traveling with Special Items
Traveling with Special Items

Firearms & Ammunition

You may only transport firearms, ammunition and firearm parts in your checked baggage. Firearms, ammunition and firearm parts are prohibited from carry-on baggage.
There are certain limited exceptions for law enforcement officers who may fly armed by meeting the requirements of Title 49 CFR 1544.219. Law enforcement officers should read our policies on traveling with guns.
The key regulatory requirements to transporting firearms, firearm parts or ammunition in checked baggage are:
  • You must declare all firearms to the airline during the ticket counter check-in process.
  • The firearm must be unloaded.
  • The firearm must be in a hard-sided container.
  • The container must be locked. A locked container is defined as one that completely secures the firearm from access by anyone other than you. Cases that can be pulled open with little effort do not meet this criterion. The pictures provided here illustrate the difference between a properly packaged and an improperly packaged firearm.
  • We recommend that you provide the key or combination to the security officer if he or she needs to open the container. You should remain in the area designated by the aircraft operator or TSA representative to take the key back after the container is cleared for transportation. If you are not present and the security officer must open the container, we or the airline will make a reasonable attempt to contact you. If we can't contact you, the container will not be placed on the plane. Federal regulations prohibit unlocked gun cases (or cases with broken locks) on aircraft.
  • You must securely pack any ammunition in fiber (such as cardboard), wood or metal boxes or other packaging that is specifically designed to carry small amounts of ammunition.
  • You can't use firearm magazines/clips for packing ammunition unless they completely and securely enclose the ammunition (e.g., by securely covering the exposed portions of the magazine or by securely placing the magazine in a pouch, holder, holster or lanyard).
  • You may carry the ammunition in the same hard-sided case as the firearm, as long as you pack it as described above.
  • You can't bring black powder or percussion caps used with black-powder type firearms in either your carry-on or checked baggage.

We and other authorities strictly enforce these regulations. Violations can result in criminal prosecution and civil penalties of up to $10,000 per violation.
Airlines may have their own additional requirements on the carriage of firearms and the amount of ammunition that you may have in your checked baggage. Therefore, travelers should also contact the airline regarding its firearm and ammunition carriage policies.
Also, please note that many other countries have different laws that address transportation and possession of firearms. If you are traveling internationally, please check with the authorities at your destination about their requirements.

I was told by TSA that there was a weight limit on ammo not a number, but either way you can fly with ammo.

As far as buying ammo, I have bought ammo in 4 different states and never had an issue, go to walmart if all else fails??


You should be fine

Sure you can. There is no registration or paperwork required on ammo purchases. I live in SC and buy in NC all the time, sometimes even GA. Went up to Pineville a couple of months ago and bought 10 boxes of .380 Auto - no problem. "Do you want more?" was the only question asked.

You also can buy ammo in IL if you're out of state, at least according to Rural King last time I was visiting family in Souther Illinois. Just needed my out of state license, since as a non-res I can't have a FOID. I agree with the other posters, things are a bit simpler outside of IL.
