I was promised 10 rounds of .50 BMG by a buddy in CA. Can he just place them in a padded envelope and mail them or what? What is the procedure (UPS?) for mailing such evil items from Kali to FL?

Also, about flying with ammo in checked baggage--- can you still fly with ammo in CA, or is that illegal now too?

Ummmmm Don't ask don't tell? Or maybe contact Troy or Eric then Ammoman, they should know. I think there might be a Hazmat fee but I don't know if it pertains to such a small amount. Also, try the Ammo Forum. SGtar15 PS I know this is of very little help.

If it's regular ammo (that is, not tracer, AP, explosive, etc.) then all is well. Just so long as your mail recipient is allowed to possess ammo (nonfelon, over 18 (21? for handgun ammo?), etc.) It is also legal to mail-order and receive ammo in Kalifornia. (LA City? County? may have exceptions but I don't think it's enforced and anyway 1st violation is an infraction I think. Also, LA folks can drive to next city or county and buy ammo off shelf without permit, waiting period, etc. Flying with ammo is no problem - but then I have flown with declared guns too. If you were referring to flying with ammo alone and without accompanying guns, some questions might be raised but nothing bans it. My gun+ammo+flying experience has been on Alaska Air only (hunter friendly) on west coast. Check airline's website about prohibited items and sporting goods, and print out and carry with you when time to fly. Bill Wiese San Mateo, CA

Shipped already via UPS- looks like they don't care about incendiary/ap/ etc. Thanks!

USPS regulations prohibit shipping ammunition. If shipping by common carrier (ground) DOT regulations require it be labeled: ORM-D Small Arms Ammunition You are permitted to carry small amounts of ammunition (10-11lbs) in checked baggage. Check with the specific Airline first as it varies.
