Headed to Reno Tomorrow

A friend is about to go to that big gun show in the sky, metaphorically speaking, and my wife and I are flying down to say goodbye.  Fortunately Nevada now recognizes both the enhanced and standard Idaho carry permits.  I am flying Alaska Air and it appears that I can store my ammo in the case in magazines.

On Alaska Airlines flights 001-999 and flights 2000-2999, up to 50 lbs.(domestic) and 11 lbs. (international - where permitted) may be checked. Customers checking in or connecting to Alaska Airlines flights 3420-3499 are limited to 11 lbs. of ammunition. Ammunition must be securely packed in the original manufacturer's package or in a container designed for ammunition and of sufficient strength to protect it from accidental crushing or discharge (i.e. wood, fiber, plastic, or metal). The projectile must be no larger than 11/16" in diameter, the size of a dime. Ammunition may be checked with or separately from the firearm. Spent ammunition shells will be accepted in checked baggage provided they meet the same acceptance procedures as live ammunition (e.g. packed in a crush-proof case)
The magazines are designed for ammunition and they are certainly more crush-proof than ammunition boxes.
