Default How do you ship ammo legallly ?

I have primed brass to sell and loaded ammo to sell. I do not want problems when shipping. What is the best way?

You must ship ground and package with an ORM-D label attached. Just go to your local UPS hub and they will help you out. No USPS shipping. Not sure about FedEx.

I ship mine by FedEx Ground. As stated by Larry above, I attach an ORM-D label.
I have a FedEx account so they will pick up at my home. Of course I can drop it off at a FedEx hub if I so desire.

The "hub" part is important.

You won't have much success at the "UPS Store" outlets.

set up account with fedex or ups. now wont get any special deals on shipping cost but they will pick it up at your home. Although I think it cost a few bucks for non scheduled pixk up times. You can have them mail you some ORMD stickers also. or print a copy of a stiker and glue/tape it to the box.

2nd this...... UPS shipping works well, but you can't use their shipping outlets or satellite stores, you have to go right to their shipping operations in your town. .... Good luck....

I have FedEx and UPS accounts that do give a small discount.

Yes, I usually ship UPS ground because the same driver picks up ground or expedited. Which means he comes along almost every day on my street.

Fedex is different trucks usually.

Both of the hubs are a long ways from me, so worth it to have them come here.

USPS needs to change their rules, they lose a lot of money by not shipping pistols or ammo by regular folks.
