what would be a good estimated shipping cost for a box of bullets? any good idea?
Med flat rate USPS is 12 or 13 Dollars...1000 bullets fit easily in those..Mike in CT
Box of 100 is 7 dollars and some change in a small flat rate box. Usps
thank you for the reply's
After USPS flat rate, it goes up sharply. A lot.
Its cheaper to send multiple flat rates than one box with a few thousand bullets in it shipped by weight
Try this ?? I got a box of 500 …
USP fiber envelope rapped a round the box and taped tight. $10 ( maybe the online envelopes ) ?
Fed-X Bag will work at the right shipping location ????
You'll be hard pressed to beat the USPS Flat Rate Priority shipping: small box (works for small boxes, up to, about 1.5" deep), @ $7.20; medium box $13.65. The medium box, with a little extra armoring, will accommodate up to 2,000 of thirty caliber bullets. For the maximum weight limit, or, indeed, much over 20 Lb., the medium box is poorly constructed/flimsy (my opinion), thus, to prevent loss/damage, my "extra armoring" comment. Insurance - I believe $4.00 per $100 - can dramatically increase the cost. RG
USPS flat rate is the way to go. Reinforcement of the box is key. I have cardboard kits that I cut on my table saw that get glued in with construction adhesive and then the box is glued shut and taped. Properly reinforced they do just fine.
The other key is to properly pack the contents so that they do not move around. The box will be thoroughly tumbled by the handling equipment. You have to prepare your shipment for this properly.
