I am trying to find the correct labels for shipping ammo.  I have the brown small arms one but I am told the required labels have changed.

To meet the exception for Limited Quantity (Ltd. Qty.), ammunition must be shipped via ground and only within the 48 contiguous United States. The package requires the “Limited Quantity Diamond Label” on at least one side or end of the outer container. The total package weight cannot exceed 66 pounds. Limited Quantity does not require Hazardous Materials shipping papers when transported via ground.

Jerry – I have shipped a lot of collector ammo over the last 3 years. As I downsized my Winchester lever collection I sold all of the ammo I had acquired over a 40 plus year period. I live in Alaska so the only way I could get it out of here was to take it in carry-on baggage when I traveled. This meant guys often had to wait quite a while after the sale for delivery. I am sure getting boxes of full, still sealed ammo was worth the wait. Anyway, shipping ammo from one location to another in the lower 48 is easy. I used UPS – you cannot ship it from any UPS store, you have to take it to one of their Customer Service Centers. You do not need to prepare a shipping label – the UPS agent will do that for you – you just provide the to/from address and they do the rest. The package does require a “Limited Quantity Label” – just Google “shipping ammo” and it will give you the labels which can be printed and then taped on the package. As I recall, the first time I did it I did not have the limited quantity labels and the UPS agent printed one for me.
