    Can you ship small quanities of shotgun shells person to person? What I mean is two boxes or less, or do you have to ship either UPS or FEDEX and pay a hazmat fee.

    Thanks,

    UPS, no hazmat fee, just ORM-D labels. Shipping 15 shells halfway cross country costs about $12. Use the smallest practical box.

    UPS would be the best bet.

    Mark the package ORM-D with a sticker, or if written by hand the letters "ORM-D".

    David- I would cost around $10-$12 to ship two boxes of shells. One can buy premium shells locally for about $8 a box or less. Seems more efficient to me to mail a check rather than ship shells.

    Pat,

    I'm having chokes worked on by one of the pros, and I don't think the shop wants to go thru the hassel and buy shells. Besides, I'm sending my reloads, which may be cheaper.

    Thanks for all who replyed,

    David McMillen
