Default Stupid question about shipping ammo

This will have been my first time shipping ammunition as a seller and not buyer, my understanding currently is that I can only go through UPS or FedEx?

Can someone cut the legalese on their websites (preferably UPS, they`re closer)and explain what I need to do to send some ammo please? My brain is fried after a few long days and I have no idea what I`m reading.

You have to ship from a UPS facility and not a contract UPS outlet.
You will have to enter shipping data address, ammunition type and your address etc. into the system at the UPS facility
It must be securely packaged.

You must supply and affix the ORM-D placard. UPS does not supply them. It need not be in color and can be found in the internet.

Haha, thank you indeed! What do you mean by "Securely" packaging? It`s a bunch of loose ammunition and came to me as a freebie that way, all just dumped into a can.

Securely = it should not rattle or be lightly packaged.

So if I were to reinforce the box and add a metric fuckton of foam padding I should be good?

Fill the ammo can with foam / newspaper / dirty underwear [yes, it's been reported] / whatever so the cartridges don't clink & rattle.

Then you can pack it in multiple tight layers of cardboard ( see the recent thread where the member shows you how to wrap a rifle for shipping [ sorry, since Jen closed a lot of the board from Google, I can't find a fu**ing thing any more ]) and you should be G2G

Glad for the replies so soon, all. I know some subforums can get more than a little slow, and because I`ll be working nearby my local UPS facility tomorrow I`d love to get it shipped tomorrow.

Okay, box is packaged and not rattling in the slightest. Before I send this sucker off I`m just wanting to check one last time that we`re looking good on this. The UPS website said that a box has to extend 1/4 inch around the handwritten ORM-D marking if handwritten.

Does this look good?

Just print a ORM-D label and slap it on the box. Use the one I posted or Google one.
The handwritten will work too.

LOL BRO, UPS has always been fine with me drawing one on.

They will be fine with what he did.

Update:
UPS guy arrived today to pickup. Had to schedule a pickup from home and pay out the ass for it but it`s on the way.

He`d never seen a handwritten ORM-D label and just to make sure he called his superior and let me hear the conversation on Speaker. He got the all clear but just in case he also printed out a label himself and stuck it on. Next to my handwritten stuff.

10/10 customer service, looking past the $50 fee for not driving an hour to send a single package.

When I shipped a crate out a while back I had one ammo label attached to the box. The UPS guy plastered about 3-4 more all around the box. I thought only one was required, but for whatever reason he put a neon sign on the damn thing.

Most UPS facilities do not have or apply the labels. Only one is required.

Fjord, You are not stupid, and please take no offense, but maybe next time lets try to make it appear a little more professional, after all ,we are professionals are we not ? Acceptable ? Yes. Does it look like some Hillbilly from Myakka City identified the package ? Yes. Will MY UPS hub supply ORMD labels ? No. Glad it worked in the manner you identified the package.

For you're convenience,

Unlike a lot of people on this website, I can identify humor when it`s in front of me.

I didn`t have the ability to print an ORM-D label however considering the fact that the printer`s been broken since the cat shoved it off the desk.
