No one in Oz manufactures brass (at least for civilians) so its imported, but someone is making a killing compared to what you pay for Starline brass -

 

1000 x $161 USD (around $210 AUD)

On 'special' at 1000 x $490 AUD down from 1000 x $570

Winchester 1000 x $550 AUD

It does not seem out of bounds for a pard to send a box of brass to another pard Down Under.
A pard here, did that very thing for me with 44 mag brass.
We are both in the US, but it is the idea that counts.

Especially if that brass is once-fired and either clean or dirty, that makes declaration much easier.

Postage is way more than you think. A 15" X 12" X 0.75" envelope costs $12.20 from the US to AU.

 

From what I can research a small package would start at $75.00 and go up from there.

Once fired brass is likely to set off the explosives sniffer. Pard mailed me a powder funnel that must have sent off the sniffer as the package came with a notification that it had been opened by a postal inspector because it appeared suspicious. Only thing I can figure is they detected powder residue.
