Hi!

I've tried seraching here and elsewhere and can't find the exact answer I'm looking for.

I have a small quantity of antique shotgun shells that I might be looking to sell on Action Arms or Gun Broker. (Around 450-475 16 ga. Remington paper hull 8s, 6s, and 4s, in their original boxes, in an original cardboard shipping carton.)

[EDIT] -- No legal issues, I understand. What's the best way to ship ammo?

Many thanks!

You can't ship them by the U. S. Postal Service---would have to go by UPS or Fedex. Some states have regulations about selling ammo to "unautorized" parties, etc.---think the "problem" states are Mass., Ill., Calif., Hawaii, New Jersey----"problem" cities are NYC, Chicago and Washington, DC.

Ship them ground UPS or FedEx, label them "ORM-D" on the side. Do not ship them loose - put them in ammo containers/boxes. That's all. No extra fees or hassle.

Awesome! Thanks for the info!

What I have is about 3-4 boxes of this, exactly: http://www.auctionarms.com/search/displayitem.cfm?itemnum=8648508

About 12 boxes of these: http://www.auctionarms.com/search/displayitem.cfm?itemnum=8714997 (But in the boxes.)

And 4 boxes of "Shur Shot" low brass No. 4s.

From the Auction Arms listings, they should be worth quite a bit more as collectibles than as shootin' ammo.
