Never shipped ammo before. Who is best to use for shipping? I'm guessing UPS but no idea. What is the process to do it? Does it have to be packaged any certain way? Wasn't sure where to post this and figured someone here would know. Have some I'm thinking about selling.

If it looks good, you'll see it If it sounds good, you'll hear it If it's marketed right, you'll buy it But...If it's real, you'll feel it Kid Rock
Don't ship ammo in a baggy or plastic wrap. They have a magic way of shaking loose from stuff like that. Pack as tightly as possible. (They're going to get you for weight and box dimensions.) Must be marked with an ORD symbol (diamond)... you can buy the stickers on Amazon for a few dollars. Some UPS hubs will still let you draw it on, others won't. (Technically, their auditors say it shouldn't be drawn, but it really comes down to the clerk you get.) Shipping 2-3 boxes from Virginia to Texas usually runs about $12-15 dollars.
I use FedEx, you need to package the ammo in a box within a box. Pack tight, use the diamond placard and call for a pickup. I think the pickup is $4.00 I have an account with them so I print my own labels. Fairly easy to open an account and its a lot handier.
