I see that people are having success with the 85g bullets, I just need to get it out of my head that I don't need big bullets to take down a deer (I've hunted with 165-180g 30-06 all of my life). It's hard to do when it's all you've heard all your life...
Mugenlude, If you can't find any before deer season, let me know. I'll be going to MN nest week, and I should be back by Nov 15, I can set you up with enough to get through deer season.
A plan is just a list of things that doesn't happen.
what are the rules for shipping ammo? i haven't mailed anything in years
United Parcel Service (UPS):
1. Pack ammo within a sturdy cardboard box, gross weight limit of 66 pounds.
2. Print ORM-D label, cut out and tape to a least one side of box. (others have just written ORM-D on the box and put a square around it)
3. Take package to a UPS Customer Center only - NOT at Drop-Off Box, The UPS Store, Mail Boxes etc., Sonic. Might be a good idea to have the UPS Hazardous Material Support Center number with you -- 800-554-9964. Varied success with UPS pick-up at your location.
UPS accepts domestic ground shipments of ammunition that have been classified by the shipper as "Cartridges, small arms", "ORM-D" (Other Regulated Material). The package must be properly marked according to the requirements of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR). Contact the Hazardous Material Support Center at 800-554-9964 for details on regulatory information.
