I want to ship 1K of rounds (223) several states away via UPS.  What's a good ballpark figure? Anyone can advertise good ammo prices but if they charge double for shipping the advantage goes away!

A bit more $$$ than they guys prices in SGN, but you make it up by the fact that he dosen't charge to ship.

It's easiest to just order from him.

I would say $10, but it depends how much the dealer wants to pad his profit.

Ya don't need to go through a dealer to buy ammo.  I say $10 is low.  It all depends on weight.  Plus you factor into the distance.  Look at UPS.com and do some figuring.

Ever heard of something called a phone?I buy from different places depending on caliber there is a difference there 308 is twice as heavy as 223..........

Yeah Cutie Pie I've heard of the phone!
Thought I'd get an average answer from the group without running into a moron but no such luck!  And yes I got back from Knob Creek yesterday!  Had to park in the next county and hoof it in, same old shit push and shove. I did like the macineguns though. I suppose if I were way cool I'd showed up in cammo and took the $60 chopper ride in their little scout ship. There's a fine line I guess between the weekend warriors and the weekend weirdos. Not a lot of serious folk, a lot of Rambo wannabes. There were a fair amount of decent folk there though to be honest.

A 1000 round case of .223 weighes about 30 pounds (including packaging), so somewhere around $10-$15 sounds about right.

You can calculate what it would acctually cost by going to the UPS site: [url]http://wwwapps.ups.com/servlet/QCCServlet[/url]

I'm paying $68 from  the ammoman to me in hawaii, good deal since not to many people will ship ammo to hawaii. thanks ammoman!

Yeah ammoman sounds like a good person to do business with. He doesn't screw you with the credit card surcharge either. I've got to renew my driver's license and send him a copy, else I would have ordered this weekend.
