Oh I know. I've already bought a roll of 300 ORM-D stickers.

Has anyone bought boxes from the UPS store or homedepot that work well? I think Homedepot sells and extra small one.

cardboard and packaging tape. Cut an old box and make fit.

Make yourself a free account on UPS or FedEx, shipping is usually a little discounted and you print the label at home. Plus you have all your history saved.

Yes, as mentioned you have to ship from a hub. The stores won't take it.

I have recently purchased ammo off this forum. The cans were in boxes, with pieces of cardboard to pad them to the size of the box. One person shipped each 30 cal can separately, the other sent the two cans on one box.

I am not sure of the weights, as the individual cans had more rounds the the single box of two cans.

In the cans, the ammo was in a heavy plastic bag, like CMP used. The bag added padding to keep the rounds from rattling around.
