If you are buying ammo from a private party, who will ship it?

Thanks,

Would not use the US mail. UPS can do it but it must go Ground Rate. Call first to make sure.

UPS will ship it for you, but there will be a haz mat fee as well as the shipping charges.

No hazmat fee on loaded ammo only powder and primers.

United Parcel Service (UPS):

1. Pack ammo within a sturdy cardboard box, gross weight limit of 66 pounds.
2. Print ORM-D label, cut out and tape to a least one side of box.
3. Take package to a UPS Customer Center only - NOT at Drop-Off Box, The UPS Store, Mail Boxes etc., Sonic. Might be a good idea to have the UPS Hazardous Material Support Center number with you -- 800-554-9964. Varied success with UPS pick-up at your location.

Per UPS:
UPS accepts domestic ground shipments of ammunition that have been classified by the shipper as "Cartridges, small arms", "ORM-D" (Other Regulated Material). The package must be properly marked according to the requirements of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR). Contact the Hazardous Material Support Center at 800-554-9964 for details on regulatory information.

Would not use the US mail. Reason being is that it's a FELONY to send ammo through the US Mail.

Plus they don't want Letter Carriers access to live ammo.

In addition to this you also have the option of taking the ammo to the UPS Customer Center and have them package and label it. They will charge for the packing materials though.

You mentioned factory ammo, but you can ship handloads as well.....

And like said above, there is no Hazmat fee when shipping loaded ammo.
