Hello. Does anyone know if it is legal to buy a mag (mail order) from a state where 30 round mags are legal and have it sent to my home (in a state where 30 rnd mag sales are illegal)? Thanks and good day.

I can answer for California: No. That would constitute "importing" a high-capacity magazine into the state, which is just as illegal as manufacturing one.

Depends on your state. In Hawaii, the manufacture, possession, sale, barter, trade, gift, transfer, or acquisition of detachable ammunition magazines with a capacity in excess of ten rounds which are designed for or capable of use with a pistol is prohibited. However, magazines originally designed to accept more than ten rounds of ammunition which have been modified to accept no more than ten rounds and which are not capable of being readily restored to a capacity of more than ten rounds are allowed. So, for Hawaii: 1. Manufacture, possession, sale, barter, trade, gift, transfer, and acquisition are self explanatory. 2. Is the magazine designed or capable of use with a pistol? NO. Then round count does not matter. Yes, then: 3. Has the magazine been modified to accept no more than ten rounds? No. Then the mere possession of the magazine is a misdemeanor unless inserted into a pistol, which would then be a class C felony. YES, then: 4. Does the modification prevent the magazine from being readily restored to a capacity of more than ten rounds? NOTE: no court in Hawaii has ruled with respect to what the term “readily” means. If the Legislature wanted to used “permanently,” it could have done so. No. Then the mere possession of the magazine is a misdemeanor unless inserted into a pistol, which would then be a class C felony. With respect to your initial question, assuming they are magazines that are designed or capable of use with a pistol, make the purchase, but make sure they are modified to comply with the law before bringing them into the State.

Are those the only states you can't freely ship high-cap mags to? CA, NJ and is it WA state or DC?

If you can't legally own one or buy one in the state, you can't have it shipped into the state. If it's legal to own one in the state but not buy one, you can't have one shipped. But you can probably go out of state and buy one, bring it home.
