Greetings,

I did a fast check on Internet and did not find the info. So, I am trying to post the question here and hope it is not falling under the stupid questions category:

If there a maximum of small arms primers that can be ship in one shipment?

What about the powder, what is the max that can be shipped in one shipment if there is a limit?

Thank you

The Hazmat fee is per box. If your order is too big you pay more than one fee.

Greetings,

Is there a standard box for that kind of shipping?
I was planning to buy 10k large and 10k small primers and maybe 5 pounds of powder.

Would it be 1-2 or more boxes?

Thank you

Check with these folks: Powder Valley They will ship powder and primers in the same order (unlike Midway).
20k primers shouldn't be a problem to ship, but I don't know what (if any) laws there are regarding household storage of that many.

Any chance you're on the NE side of Atlanta? I'd like to find someone that lives up my way to split an order of stuff (and the $20 haz-mat fee...)

They charge one Hazmat Fee, but it still comes in one box? I thought shipping company rules usually required them to be separate. I guess that doesn't stop powder valley from charging just for one, as a business deal or something.

Hmm, I didn't look at it that way. I would guess they have to charge a fee for each box, not per order. I don't really know.

They can still charge one fee, but to ship I'm sure they're paying two fees...I wonder where they make up the difference. Are there prices reasonable or are they higher than most other places? They can make it up in the prices, or the shipping charges (non Haz mat, regular charges).

The prices seem to be some of the best around.
Now you've got me wondering :roll: I'm about to place a an order for bullets; I guess I'll have to call and see what's up...

I gotta keep you on your toes! Gotta get some good prices, and help people out, you know? By the way, share links if you come across good deals. I try to, if I think it's worth it or if I think someone here would find it at least somewhat useful.

Greetings,

I am living in Augusta, quite far from Atlanta.

Wideners seems to have better pricing than Powder valley. I am planning to order
5k small pistols
5k large pistols
5k small pistols magnum (for my357mag) (Am I wrong with that one?)
and 10-20 pounds of Accurate #2.

If they charge just one hazmat they will probably be the cheapest. If they charge 2, they probably won't be. they are cheaper on primers, but not on powder.

thank you

Greetings,

Just sent it this morning. Must I send it to Powder Valley too?

Thank you
I'm not sure. I'd call and ask. I sent my C&R to 10 places. I wasn't really completely serious about getting into reloading at the time, but the discounts for some of the stuff is worth it.
