    I want to sell a few hundred rounds of .223 Wolf ammo, but I am unfamiliar with the shipping process. I know there are certain carriers you can and cannot use and there are certain procedures that need to be followed. Can/will anybody enlighten me?

    Most likely have to bring to a UPS or FEDEX hub, call around first. The smaller places like kinkos wont take it..

    Don't use USPS.

    UPS ground, in a box with a label (even hand drawn) "Cartridges, Small Arms - ORM-D". Google the label for an example, maybe even one you can print and tape on. No extra fees involved, but it does have to go UPS ground.

    ORM-D still works, but there is a new labeling scheme to be more internationally consistent (see attachment). The pro is that it doesn't say "small arms ammunition". The con is there may be a cost, but UPS seems confused about how to handle the new label. It will be required starting in 2014.
