    USPS has an internal reg, no ammo.

    YOu need to send it Fedex or UPS. Take a big marker,put a square with ORM-D in it just like what you see on a flat of shells, and you're good to go.

    You have to go to a UPS CUSTOMER SERVICE CENTER, not a UPS store, shipping outlet, Office Depot, Staples. All I ever tell them is I have antique cartridges in the box and the guy hands me a ORM-D sticker, and tells me to write SMALL ARMS, CARTRIDGES next to the sticker, and away they go. Wayne
