    I am new here, so I hope this is the place to ask this question.
    Can someone help me with the regulations concerning the sending of ammo through the US Mail?

    parsons - ammo cannot go through the US Mail. You can however send it through UPS and you need to put a triangle in it with ORM-D on 2 sides I believe (showing it is ordance).

    Let me go get my post it note on the package and I'll be right back to tell you better.

    Edited to correct due to putting wrong letters in.

    Welcome Parsons, Tlynn is correct that you will have to ship through UPS and still that can be a pain.

    Welcome aboard !!!!!

    It is legal to send it via USPS as long as you do not get caught, but if it were me, I'd listen to Tlynn.

    Thanks to all for your quick reply.

    In this case anyway, it will probably be better to be safe rather than sorry.

    Welcome Aboard parsons77!

    TLynn is correct, simply draw a rectangular outline
    on 2-sides of the box and write "ORM-D" Cartridges,
    Small Arms, and send it UPS!

    Parsons77. Welcome and I will even pay the shipping if you send it to me. Let me know when you are sending it. I am in need of .45 ACP.
