Yes, the Airlines vary on the ammo thing. Me, I put it in my packed boots to save the worry or argument.

Yup, done that too, put it in your boots which is in another piece of checked baggage. The TSA might inspect it but really don't care much about ammo in factory boxes.

I just looked up firearms rules for Alaska Airlines. They allow one case (no limit on number of fire arms in the case). Ammunition in original manufacturers box or in a box designed to carry ammunition. If you plan to travel with a firearm where the frame can be disassembled from the gun, the frame is considered a firearm even though it has no trigger mechanism. The rules do not say the firearm and ammo cannot be in the same case. There is no mention of where magazines must travel.

I travel by air a lot. Last month some airlines started using heavy wire ties around case to seal it. they put them on at the baggage claim area before giving you the case. just more hassle.
