    I would like to tap into the vast knowledge base here at TS.com. I just purchased a "lot" of trap goods from another gentleman here on TS.com. Several guns, a reloader, empty shells etc. The problem is it included 8 lbs of powder and about 700 primers. Without any previous experience with these items we are now discovering that shipping from VA. to MO. is not as simple as taking the stuff to the UPS Store and dropping some coin.

    First, the guns are to be shipped FFL to FFL. Can these items be shipped through the same channels to alleviate some of the difficulties?

    I am sure that within moments I will have a solution, THANKS in advance.

    Due to Hazmat fees it probably would not be worth it to ship only 8 lbs of powder and 700 primers.

    you cannot ship powder and primers unless you are a hazmat certifide shipper check ups online for a shipper in your area they can send for you cost is $20 as of now and any thing you can get in that box up to 140lbs will go for the 20 ricks1

    UPS has the FFL to FFL requirement as their own policy, it is not required by law.

    You can ship in state with no FFL. To another state, the gun has to be received by an FFL holder.

    You will not be able to gain on the primers and powder because the Hazmat fee will make it too pricey. Better off to put it on the board at a local club or 2. Someone will surely want them if priced right.

    YOU cannot ship primers or powder or any ORM-D haz-mat materials yourself by FedEx or UPS unless you have their certification. The certification is a one-day $600 course I was told by UPS. You may, as suggested above, go through a haz-mat certified local shipper.

    You can try, but I would hate to stand he liability if someting happened.
