Re: HELP! I need measure for a savage model 6a
Shipping charges are usually by weight, not volume, and 1/2 plywood is darned heavy. Regular commercial rifle shiprments are in cardboard boxes and there is rarely any problem. If I may make a suggestion, go to a local gun dealer and see if he has a suitable box that a rifle came in. Even though you can legally ship a long gun by USPS or common carrier, you might find it advantageous to have the dealer pack and ship the gun for you for a small fee.
There are some exceptions, but generally guns shipped interstate must be to an FFL holder.
