I am in the southern metro--can anyone help me out and tell me how to ship ammo?  Where to go, how to package?

Thanks!

I don’t think anything has changed other than the label requirement.  I believe you now need the “Limited Quantity” placard instead of the “ORM-D” label now.  Download some of those and tape them on the package.  Create a UPS ground label and drop it off at the hub on Oppermann drive in Eagan, or with any UPS driver you happen to see.  Or pay $15 or so to schedule a driver pickup from your house.  Look at the UPS website to confirm that’s still correct.  

UPS shipping ammo

FedEx should be similar.

Remember that Gorillas work for FEDEX and UPS. Pack it in good sturdy boxes and make sure it can not shift in the box.

Easiest:  UPS simple rate using an incognito window.  Draw the 4” diamond with blacked out points and pay $15 for a pickup your house.  You can ship multiple packages on one pickup, with only the one fee, so I bundle all my shipments when possible.

I almost exclusively ship on free USPS priority boxes, the medium and large flat rectangular work almost perfect for ammo boxes when shortened.

I use UPS and do a drop off at a Hub, saves the few bucks on a pickup.  As for using the "free" USPS boxes, you're not supposed to use those unless for USPS per their rules, but to each his own.

I think the USPS boxes have a disclaimer on them too...but I still use them.

Well apparently the OP got it all figured out, since he hasn't been back to the thread in 2 weeks.
