    Yes you can.
    UPS is my carrier of choice. Pack it tight so it doesn't wiggle around.
    There are new markings that are going to be implemented on the first of the year.
    UPS should have some stickers that you can tape on the package. The UPS stores won't handle ammo shipments, you have to go to a main hub facility.

    Diamond Labels Will Replace ORM-D Labels on Ammo Shipments.

    The days of the “ORM-D: Small Arms Cartridges” labels for ammo shipments are numbered. The Dept. of Transportation (DOT) is phasing out the current ORM-D ammo labels, replacing them with a larger striped diamond label that does not mention “Small Arms Cartridges”. This change is designed to harmonize U.S. shipping rules with United Nations standards. You can start using the new “Limited Quantity” diamond labels for ammo shipments immediately, but they are not mandatory — yet. You can continue to use the old ORM-D “Cartridges, Small Arms” labels until December 31, 2013. As of January 1, 2014 you MUST use the Striped Diamonds.

    If it's easier for you there is a Fed-X hub on Cornfoot RD. That's up near the airport and closer to I-205 that Swan Island. However I do not know how/if Fed-X handles ammo.

    Federal Express (FedEx) - Shipping ammo generally prohibited unless HazMat certified.
