    Bring all the premium stuff you can.The regular cheaper Remington and Winchester type stuff is easy to find at least in Wrangell

    I'd recommend you bring powder and primers if you reload as well. It's pretty hard to get right now.

    How are you shipping all this ammo? If you are flying, you had better check with Homeland Security. If you are driving, it would be a good idea to check with Canadian Customs on what is allowed.
    Common carriers are restricted on how much they can haul.

    If your ferry hits Canada along the way you are going to have some issues. Just check into your stopovers. Even if you don't disembark in Canada but the ferry stops at a port you could be in trouble if you are over the 5K round limit. I just moved up here last September (drove through Canada) and went through all the craziness. The CAN border agents when called could not give me a straight answer, neither could our border agents nor ATF. A big pain in the butt!
    We finally found some printed CAN form with a 5K round limit and printed it off and declared everything in writing and itemized at both ports. Pucker factor for sure. Look up my posts from last summer if you wanted to see all the garbage I went through.
    Just be careful and honk when you go through Homer! Let me know if you need to sell your ammo for drinking money once you get here!

    If you don't disembark you can't and won't have any problems. The only port that the ferry might stop in in Canada is Prince Rupert. As long as your vehicle doesn't exit the ferry and cross through the border checkpoint your fine. I've been on this route at least a dozen times without any problems.
