ammo does not have to be shipped through an FFL.(<=fact)

i dont believe it has to have any markings unless its 1,000 rounds or more.(<=guestimation)


if its just 50rnds, i wouldnt even tell them its ammo.

Anyone (that can legally posess it) can ship ammo (to anyone who can legally posess it), just has to have the ORM-D label regardless of the amount.

One thing is that the "stores" (FedEx/Kinkos, UPS Store, Mailboxes Etc) may not accept them since they're not owned by the said shipper. They just have a contract with them.

You may be able call and schedule a pickup at your residence from the shippers.

The Fedex reject you talked to better check their policies. No mention of a FFL, just that you've passed hazmat training. Furthermore, I've shipped items clearly marked ORM-D at a FedEx World Service Center (Huntington WV airport) without issue.

Here's another hole in shipping policies, they list "Federal Firearms License", so going by their guidelines, even a C&R holder can ship according to their policies. The idiots at the counter don't have a clue between Type 01 and 03, all they look for is something that says ATF and Dept of Treasury.

Purchaser has to provide you with a release and a copy of their ID too. I think ammoman.com has the release.

I shipped ammo one time and I will never do it again. PITA

I'm not saying to do this but if its just a few rounds, not like a thousand.

Pack 'em tight in a fedex box, use the self service box and pay using a money order (one without a place for your name). Don't mark it ORM-D nor put a return address.

But that'd be against DOT and FedEx regulations so I don't advise doing it.

ORM-D is all that is needed. Never mark it as ammo. Bite the bullet and take it to a UPS hub. It is not considered hazardous materials. FEDEX to an FFL is thier policy, not law. You the shipper are responsible for the package till it reaches it destination. If you do not mark the box, and it is discovered, you will be in court. If you ship it to someone/somewhere that it is prohibited, or they lie about being legal, you are at fault, the shipper. Pictured ID is just a protection that companies use to be 100% legal and gives them an aliby. A C&R 03ffl is just as good as a valid pictured ID. Usually an adult signature is required to recieve it, any adult.

With the key word being Usually. My local UPS guy/gal has no problem with leaving ORM-D packages on my front porch. Smokeless powder? Well, that's a different story...

Any idae is thier an extra charge for package marked orm-d?

No, It should go by weight. I shipped a 17lb Norton tank and it was a few cents cheaper then 18.5lbs of ammo I sent the following week, both sent to my brother.
