I have several partial boxs of ammo, and I am thinking I would like to make them available to people to be helpful (10rds would be plenty toaccuracy check with) and free up space while mAking a knickel. But I have no idea what it would actually cost to ship a half box of 243 ect. Anyone know?

Find someone local to help, the UPS min. $8 or so and the hassle might be to much.

Depends on how far and how heavy but the Minimum shipment is way too much for your needs.

I just calculated that to send 1 one pound package to my next door neighbor overnight would be $68.00

Cheapest way for that shipment was $11.37

How much is it through the U.S. postal service in one of there "if it fits, it ships" flat rate?

The least price Small Flat Rate Box would cost you about six dollars and two years.

If you cannot do FTF.....forget it.

It's a wonderful thought, but shipping would cost more that the ammo was worth.

A brick of 22's ran me a touch over 20 dollars best bet might be to sell it as a lot so you can ship all the boxes together

$10 to $25
I've shipped several UPS packages with Ammo.
Cost depends on weight and how many Zone lines the package needs to cross.

While they rarely check, I understand their rules are No reloads...only factory ammo in the original packaging.

My last shipment was 12 boxes of 30-06 to TX (from MN) ...cost $36

UPS wants ammo marked ORM-D, but I sent several boxes without marking it (not intentionally... they never asked what was in it and I never told them). I think the last box I sent (marked ORM-D) cost me $11.

It's worth it to list it on Gunbroker if the ammo is uncommon. I had a guy buy a single box of .25ACP once just because he couldn't find the stuff anywhere. I just listed it cause I wanted it out of my ammo cans. Also sold .32S&W and .32 H&R Mag online in single boxes to people who just needed it.

I do know that shipping ammo USPS is illegal no matter how you send it though.

I shipped 50 rds. 220 Swift ammo to a friend 350 miles away for $16.60 UPS in a mtm box + cardboard.
