Shipping Ammunition

Good idea? Bad idea? Legal?

The problem is that I don't know what I don't know.

Re: Shipping Ammunition

When we go out west I put it in my boots,in my duffle bag to ship it. It must be in the original box.never had a problem.

Nature can teach us alot.

Re: Shipping Ammunition

When selling a long gun and shipping with-in the same state could it be shipped in the same box as the firearm?

The problem is that I don't know what I don't know.

Re: Shipping Ammunition

I don't think it can be shipped together, I may be wrong. I've always just printed out a ORM-D and taped it on the box and gone to UPS.

Wherever somebody’s strugglin’ to be free,
Look in their eyes ma you’ll see me.

Re: Shipping Ammunition

YPU CAN NOT SHIP AMMO WITH A LONGGUN, IT MAKES IT POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS. AS LONG AS IT IS IN ORIGINAL PACKAGING YOU CAN SHIP IT SEPERATE THOUGH

Re: Shipping Ammunition

Thanks. Does the USPS need to know its ammo when shipped?

Re: Shipping Ammunition

You can not ship any ammo throught the USPS......Must go UPS and in my opinion, the shipping fees make it almost ridiculous to do unless you ship a large amount.

Re: Shipping Ammunition

There are no extra shipping fees on ammo with UPS. They do not charge a Haz-Mat fee. I have done it a dozen times. I tell them exactly what is in the box. And on the sides of the box I write ORM-D and draw a rectangle around those letters. It cannot be shipped by AIR just UPS GROUND.
The rules are made by D.O.T. and not UPS but UPS follows those rules.

SOME UPS stores will not accept ammo to ship. It is best to go to the closest MAIN shipping building for your area.

Our forefathers didn't bury their guns. They buried those that tried to take them.
