err, no, just realized that could be construed that way.. i'm pointing out that you can ship up to 70 pounds of lead for $8.95 (cost of SHIPPING).VTDW said:Is that an offer?
Did you ask just exactly where it said that in the regulations? Low level counter flunky making up their own rules to feel important.Pavelow16478 said:Just make sure that nothing rattles in the box. I had to repack my last shipment of brass, even though it was secured inside a couple bags in the box. "It rattles, we cant ship it" :
It would be hard for some of the people working the counter to pick up a 70 lb box much less trying to shake it to see if it would rattle. ;D ;DMacGregor said:interesting.. but it's lead, doesn't really rattle..
Here's a suggestion for something I've found works. Anytime I ship bullets, brass, and yes lead, I first put them inside an old heavy cloth bag then into the box. Picked up a bunch of old money bags from a yard sale somewhere (could've been some retired bank robbers) ;D but they could be made from old jeans etc. That way if a hole gets torn in the box, hopefully everything inside is still fairly secure.mdi said:I've been getting lead shipped like this for a while now, mostly from ebay purchases. But, be careful to pack lead solid inside the box, no movement to break the box open. I lost 18 lbs of pure lead to the USPS gorillas. I got an empty box with "file a claim..."
didnt feel like raising a stink at the small town post office, so now i drive 3 miles the other way to the other small town post office who gladly ships anythingimashooter2 said:Did you ask just exactly where it said that in the regulations?

Sometimes stink needs raising. No way would I drive 3 miles to another PO. I'd get that "misunderstanding" straightened out.Pavelow16478 said:didnt feel like raising a stink at the small town post office, so now i drive 3 miles the other way to the other small town post office who gladly ships anything
