    Try Fedex Home. It's their non-union, endentured servant, you owe us for the truck operation. Pretty reasonable for something bulky with low value.

    How about US Postal Parcel Post? I bought some hulls here a while back for 3 cents....and shipped to alaska, the total was still under 4 cents each.

    Of course, it took 3 weeks to get here...but who needs hulls TODAY?

    PS...what kind you selling and how much?

    1200 + - shipped from Ma to WI USPS parcel post in a 14x14x14 box 19.00 wieghed 23lbs. Now 72 lbs is a big package. In 14x14x14 box you can get 1500 in there if you stack them. shells run about 2 lbs per hundred shipped. If you a really trying to make a buck it is hard. I get AA hulls in trade for the small engine parts I come across. Takes me about 20min to quick sort and box up. box is 2.39 shipping is 16 to 25 per 1200 12g hulls last box went out for 49.60 shipped = .04 a hull. now sib gauge Im sure a 14x14x14 box will hold 1500/1800 20g 1800/2500 28g 2500/3200 410 just guessing. How big is the box?

    Parcel post is always about 95% cheaper to ship then fed, ups etc. I have sold over 100,000 hulls on ebay (till the ban) and most when parcel post.

    The USPS postage rate calculator works well if you now size of box weight and zip code.
