    Does anyone know if I have to put a sealed crate in a cardboard box? Seems stupid but I dont know. I am shipping FEDEX G

    The crate has ORD stickers on it so I am inclined to think so, but do not know.

    Does anyone else?

    I would say do it, if only to make handling a little easier. As for ORD stickers and the like, if you buy ammo in bulk, the cardboard package has that as well, so I don't think that matters.

    i do not think you can ship ammo via fedex... i think it has to go UPS. something about hazmat fees/rules or something. not sure though

    Funny this should come up... I got some of the Aim surplus 5.56 Guat ammo a while back and it came in UPS as pictured!

    The driver was a woman, she rang the bell and asked me to come out and help her get it off truck. I got two cases and she asked what I needed all that ammo for! I told her it was "ON SALE" figured she would understand that!
