    After doing some gun trading, I find that I have several boxes of ammo that I need to sell. I've Googled "shipping ammuniton" and discovered that I need D.O.T. training to ship ammo and a OMR-D label and ship via UPS or FedEx.
    Can anyone confirm this?
    If I have to jump through the D.O.T. training hoop, I'm thinking that taking the ammo to the next gun show in my area may be a better alternative.

    Just box it up and take it to a UPS station and tell them it's ammo and they'll put the ORM-D sticker on your box for you. You can also ship via Fed-Ex.

    I ship ammo to my cartridge collecting friends all the time and haven't had a lick of problems.

    Loaded ammo you just need the ORMD label and a 200lbs crush test box. Shipping hazardous items like primers and gunpowder require hazmat shipping certification.

    Thanks, seems the "200lbs crush test box" is a fairly common item. That makes things easier.
