UPS seems to work just fine.

UPS is probably the best method, but before you do any packaging I suggest checking out their www site on shipping hazardous materials.

www.ups.com/using/services/accs/hzm-guide.html

As the shipper, it's your responsibilty to be in compliance with the regs, and IMO the best way is to follow the UPS procedures. At the bottom of the first page is a number for their Hazardous Materials Support Center, 1-800-554-9964.

No-go on the shipping. Just found out today, both FEDEX and UPS now require you to have a Hazardous Material account with them before they will accept items considered hazardous from an individual. Joy.

Troy,

ORM-D can go by air as well as ground. The ORM-D stands for Other Regulated Material-D. The D doesn't mean anything in particular. There also used to be ORM-A,B,C and E. They were dropped when the US went to the International Shipping Standards. ORM-D is only used within the US and is mostly used for consumer commodities. That is how they get us all the hazardous materials we use at the consumer level. A lot of the marking, labeling and shipping paper requirements in the regulations are not required.

Ammunition is not hazardous. Same marking (ORM-D) as hairspray.

I send and receive it several times a month.
