fedex has a triangle shipping tube but you have to use it on express mail. OK SO take the tube --it's free. Take some black paint and spray over the fed ex label and writing all over the outside and then ship it fed ex ground. Works great and they never said a word about it. motordoc

Make sure the ends of the mailer are really well taped. I would use the tape with the fibers in it.
You do not want the barrel crashing through the end of the container enroute.

Go to your local golf course pro shop and ask them if they have a discarded box that they received a golf club in. Add bubble wrap and you are ready to go. Martinpicker

No need to paint the triangle boxes, just turn them inside out. My post office keeps me in a good supply of them...for free.

I use 4" ABS drain pipe with glued and screwed rubber cap on one end and hose clamped rubber cap at the other end. I wrap the barrels in bubble warp. I have ten round trips all around the country with same pipe with no problems. I've shipped receiver and barrel together a couple of times. I like this reusable set up better than all the other methods.

My wife suggested going to the carpet store and get a tube that carpets are rolled on. It worked great and is sturdy.
