Just FYI, I checked my firearms this morning in ATL, however I was told I had to remove my ammunition (still securely in the original boxes) from the case my firearms were traveling in. I respectfully told the agent of the SWA policy (wish I’d printed a copy) but was told “it’s always been this way.” She even conferred with her counterpart next to her and he agreed! Not wanting to argue the point I made other aragnemets for my ammunition. However when I delivered my ticketed firearms to TSA they confirmed that yes, my ammunition can travel with my my firearms and they encouraged me to repack it in the firearms case as it was the most secure means of transport. Overall, the experience was relatively straightforward but it is disappointing when staff do not know/understand their own companies policies. Thank you for your time.
