    Good post!

    Just an FYI, UPS will accept other ORM-D classifications, it must say ORM D and be of a certain size, ~2.5x1.5 IIRC, it does not have to say "small arms cartridges" however it cannot say "Consumer commodity". At my former company we shipped large quantities of ammo, everything from pallets all the way down to a single box. Everything got stuck with an ORM-D sticker, but it said neither small arms cartridges nor consumer commodity, the main reason for this, we found pilferage (theft) went up with the small-arms label.

    You do not HAVE to take it to a UPS/FedEx shipping facility (stores do not belong to UPS and won't tale your ammo). But, you can request/schedule a pickup at your home or place of business for a small fee. In my case, the fee is a lot less than my time and gas expense.

    .... civilian75 and AMProducts. I'm looking into the labeling and size questions.
    I've updated the pdf file to include a home pickup link.
    Thanks guys...
