I can't imagine why not. It's just a piece of metal.

I thought we've been saying you'd need a bullet in the head to fly El Al?

I was caught with a full bullet trying to board a plane on ELAL. They released me after I told them I am serving in the military as rambo

I remember when I was learning in yeshivah we went to the army bases for Chanukah and Purim and we somehow ended up with cases of bullets. We emptied all the gun powder from them and I remember taking it on the plane and they didn't give me any issues... But this was 10 years ago

when I was in Yeshiva there we stayed at a base for shabbos and also came back with souvenirs, ended up forgetting them in the rental car cup holders lol

Probably depends where you're flying through. I have friends who brought back plenty of bullets.

Flying through moscow, they wouldn't let me on the plane with extra guitar strings, they thought I might use them as a garrote. But apparently they weren't concerned I'd actually take the strings off my guitar to do the same thing. Cuz, y'know, I might be an assassin, but there sare limits to just how paranoid you need to be, right?

They are using the term "bullet". I will assume they actually mean a "live cartridge".

Seems the case that was a problem previously, was with live rounds. This is just a slug, I can't imagine there would be an issue.

This is an actual bullet. You would be surprised how many gun owners don't know the difference. Then some wonder why I say not everyone should own a gun.
