UPS or FedEx both are good. You will probably have to take the shipment to their hub (either service) unless you have an account with either of them, and pack-n-ship type places nor even UPS stores will accept them for shipment. If you open an account with Fedex (free) they will pick up at your house. There is a charge for pickup. Shipping charge is the standard charge for weight and distance. Be sure to attach one of the diamond labels to your package.

With UPS, you are correct about a hub. I stopped at a UPS store to check on cost and whether they MIGHT accept the package. Counter Character was puzzled over what "Small Arms Ammunition" was and why the package was marked ORM-D. FedEx was just down the road and shipped with absolutely no problem and $2.00 less expensive than UPS.

Bob, good point. I have also found FedEx to be less expensive than UPS ad the counter folks are nicer. Just my .02.

UPS is 35 miles away. FedEx is 60 miles away. Think I'll open a FedEx account.

Have you seen this recent promotion for UPS

https://www.ups.com/assets/resources..._US/CB2_US.pdf

lots of fine print but may be worth it to save a few bucks??

thoughts?

FedEx, pack securely-I usually do a box inside a box, ORM-D label. Fiber strap tape. FedEx here is knowledgeable and helpful. But, that's the main FedEx ship point. Contract locations, FedEx and UPS, are chuckle-heads and claim, "Ya'll can't send no bullets." Note tobacco juice drool, and that's the female clerk.
My earlier comment reflects same as here. FedEx is recommended. Hope you aren't too far from the office.
