Thanks.

As they will need to be exported by somebody with an export licence, they should be able to organise it for you. Be warned that it is ridiculously expensive to bring a firearm from the US to Oz.
Components will also require an export permit which drives the price way up. Unless you're importing a lot it's probably cheaper to buy components locally.

ou can order brass and projectiles from the us you just need an export licence most sellers will help with the application and setting it up ReloadingInternational have this on their web site.

n Export License is required to ship bullets, brass and other reloading components out of the US. The export license authorizes the export of reloading components for personal use only. Components can not be sold or passed on to others. The export license is valid for up to 4 years, depending on your country. Multiple orders can be put on one export license. Individual orders can be shipped separately at intervals that fit your needs with no additional paperwork. The export license fee is 10% of the total of all items on the purchase order, that require an export license, up to a maximum of $250. The fee covers the cost of the export license and other paperwork required to export bullets and brass. The fee is paid with each individual order. Once the license application has been submitted, the export license fee is NOT refundable.

Australian customers are required to submit a copy of a valid B709A in place of the letter. A completed purchase order can be printed during checkout. We must also include a copy of your B709A when we apply for your license (see below on how to obtain a certificate). Once these forms are submitted it typically takes 1 week to receive the export license. The export license fee is 10% of the total purchase order. The B709A is free.

What may stuff people is the shipping cost :Australia, Hungary, Iceland, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, New Caledonia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Ukraine (USD):
Weight USPS Priority International
Up to 20 pounds $85.80
