    Does anyone have any idea what 20 or even 12 Ga. hulls weigh per thousand??? Looking to ship 5000 20 Ga. hulls. Will they fit in one box? I would guess it would take 2 or 3 boxes. Some of you guys must know this from past dealings. Please respond. Thanks Dave

    i highly doubt they'll fit in one box. I shipped i think 1300 12ga hulls once, and they all went into a HUGE box. Something big enough to fit 5k hulls would probably be too big for most common carriers to handle

    If stacked, 1000 20 ga hulls will fit in a standard 135 ct. clay bird box and will weigh 10 lbs. FD
