Shipping Loose .38 Ammo
Maybe someone could set me straight here. I can't seem to find any definitive answer via Google, BTW.
I have 1,000 rounds of WWB .38 FMJ that I stocked up on all last year when I had two .38 pistols. Now that I'm getting ready to get rid of my last one soon, I want to sell off this ammo.
Here is my dilemma. I got rid of the boxes that the ammo came in, and placed it loose in a large Tupperware container. Is it OK to bag this up (I was thinking 100 rounds per bag) in heavy duty zip-lock bags and then ship to another person if I sell it online?
I'm really concerned about having loose ammo banging around in transit.
Thanks for any insight into this.
If You are by a Range there may be empty boxes in the trash can.
Good idea; I hadn't though of that! Thanks!

If you want to fancy things up a bit, but not too much you can get white cardboard boxes and dividers from Midway.
Ammo comes from some manufacturers that way.
The answer is yes--- otherwise securely package it and properly
mark the shipping container.
Go to your local Arts & Crafts store and buy a piece/board of styrofoam. It comes in varying thickness. Cut to fit a box and use a pencil to make holes for the bullets.
Thanks for all the suggestions. I ended up doing a FTF sale so it wasn't an issue.
Regarding shipping ammo:
I did have to ship some other ammo I sold to someone else and had the worst time at FedEx yesterday. I had the ORM-D labels, the box was tightly wrapped and they were clueless about what to do and started making phone calls and telling me I needed a Dangerous Goods declaration, etc. Not one but two equally clueless supervisors got involved too! I finally said "You know what? thanks, but I will go to UPS where they know what they are doing!"
Drove down to the UPS hub and was in and out in 5 minutes!
