I just called about a quote for shipping a crate of 7N6 and he said $40 to $50 to VA
does that sound really high or what? it would be just as cheap to order 2 tins from AIM i'd guess then.

I just had some shipped to VA and I think the shipping was about $35/crate. I think the total price is still good at that rate. I'm not sure if you can do better than that right now.

i'm in st. louis about 350 miles from r guns and they wanted 35.00 to ship to me. i just drove up there and picked it up. 4 cases. had to pay taxes but after it was all said and done i got a weekend in chicago with the gas paid for. spent sunday walking around downton chicago with my family. had a blast. i guess this isn't an option for most though.

Cost $35 for me to Ohio. They ship it as is, "just the crate". It cost more to ship it like that cause it does damage to the convayor belts at UPS. If they put it in a cardboard box it would be cheaper. About $5 or $10 cheaper.

Agreed.

Two cans to MN was about $35 last time.

I'm getting charged a minimum of $12 now from almost all vendors for ANYTHING going UPS, so $35 seems pretty cheap.

Examples:

AR buffer tube from Model 1 sales: $12 shipping. The tube was only $12!
Bayonet and tantal brake form DPH: right around $11.50 shipping.
An OD AK mag and gas piston from KVAR; $12 shipping.

~40 miles west on I-90 from downtown(1-1.5hrs depending on traffic). Exit 31 North (first 31 exit), drive about 5-8 miles, stop at small strip mall on the right. Small place, they seemed to have good prices on most everything there though.

I checked shipping to Central Florida for 4 tins (AIM) which equals 2 crates of 2,160 rounds each and shipping is roughly $65. I just ordered a crate (2 tins = 2,160)from RGuns and shipping was $35 ($245 total). Seems consistent between the 2 places.

I just ordered a crate for a co-worker today and it was $235.00 shipped to Minnesota

This was to a non-residential address to, there is a price break if it goes to a business

Shipping was $40 on a crate to FL. When I got it, the label said (I think) 78 lbs. Total price was $250 shipped, which is better than anyone else I've found.

They have it, and you don't. So they will "add" a little extra on your shipping charges, cause it's called "Free Enterprise" in Illinois.
Screw your fellow gun owner here, no breaks!

This can be made easier if you guys would be kind enough to weigh a crate(wood, and the two tins inside)...the whole thing, how much does it weigh?

I was quoted $28.43 shipping from Stillwater Oklahoma (Ammunitioncenter on Gunbroker)for a crate of Bulgarian. - $249.95 + $28.43 = $278.38
Shipping from Rguns for a crate of Russian is $35 - $210 + $35 = $245

5.45 is still a great deal and can be had from different sources

I have received 2 crates from Rguns and have heard nothing but positives about Ammunitioncenter.
