The TSA website does not list casings as a prohibited nor restricted item. Given than live ammunition is listed as being allowed as a checked-in item (given it is packed correctly), i doubt spent casings are an issue at all. I couldn't easily find a list from IATA, but that could be helpful for the international and Russian domestic legs of your trip. IATA ...

However, the layout at JFK Terminal 7 means that there is no easy facility to take bags onto the inter-terminal transfer system from the gate that BA 1 uses. Nor ...

just to be more affirmative about your last question: If my ORD->BOS flight is delayed so I miss the flight out of BOS, will United (or Lufthansa) be obligated to get me from BOS to TLV? Absolutely yes! United is fully responsible for all your flights as you purchased it from them and they provided you the best way to get from point A to point B. Note ...

You can put almost anything in a checked luggage that you can normally carry with you outside the airport. You're even allowed to carry a gun on planes, in fact, it gets you past the lines since they have to check you in separate...
