UPS seems to be the only one still willing to ship ammo... at least from my area. Don't forget to make sure you attach a ORM sticker or one of the new hazard stickers or they will give you the run around. One last note... make sure that its legal to send to the person/state as intended. Laws have changed.

Here's what the new label looks like. If you dont have access to the stickers, most guys just go online and download a pic, make a copy and tape it to the box. Works just the same.

I have shipped reloads to my buddy in Colorado through the USPS. I told the clerk it was ammo and he said OK. No joke. It got to Colo Springs A-OK in three days.

eford, I didn't think it was possible to ship ammo via USPS so I looked on line and found this:

Can ammunition be shipped USPS? No, you are not allowed to ship ammo via the United States Postal Service.Jul 9, 2020
USPS prohibits the shipment of ammo both domestically and internationally. Therefore, you'll need to use another carrier such as UPS or FedEx if you wish to ship ammunition.

yes you are not supposed to and they are supposed to turn you away at the post office. It has and does happen not every employee reads the manual;

you can actually measure and weigh the box and plug in a label on UPS/Fed Ex site and go drop it off or schedule a pickup. We get packages commercially at the office or my wifes office so it isn't hard to arrange. If you have a ups or fex ex store you  can just walk-in with package and they will hook you up. That one will  get expensive i shipped 1,000 boxed rounds of 308 last summer to Florida for like 70 bucks.

I found A box with the stickers all ready on it for shipping.  I bought A coil spring trap and they put it in the box. Just happen to see the sticker Doc showed  me
 I will use that box to ship the Ammo.
Thanks Again.
