Can I ship ammo in the UUSPS Flat Rate boxes? or do I have to go through UPS or Fedex.

Thanks

Do not send ammo, powder or primers by USPS. Fedex and UPS will not take ammo at their regular outlets. You have to have an agreement with them to ship this way or deliver the package to a hub.

Also, you have to have a copy of a picture ID showing the age of the person receiving the ammo. 18 years old for rifle and shotgun, 21 for handgun ammo.

You have to go to a ups hub or whatever they call them for shipping it as well, the ups store cannot ship ammo according to the one near me. Something about their contract with ups forbids it.

You are also required to pay a haz-mat fee, aren't you?
Loaded ammunition is not HAZMAT, just powder and Primers. Ammo is classed as ORM-D

And you have to have that ORM-D lable on the outside of the box. You can find one online and print it out.

I've spoken to the UPS Hazardous Materials Support group about this and successfully shipped ammo via UPS in the past. Here's the scoop.

UPS will accept the package as long as you are at a true UPS distribution center -- not one of those mail centers where UPS comes by to pick up/drop-off. There are no special fees for loaded ammo. Write ORM-D on the box in big black letters, and draw a big black box around the letters. Above the box you just drew write "“Cartridges, small arms”. (That text doesn't need to be in big fat pen letters). They will only ship it UPS Ground. They will only ship to lower 48. It cannot exceed 66 pounds.

If the desk jockeys don't want to accept it, tell them to call 800-554-9964 and the Hazard Materials Support group will straighten them out. HTH.
