I'm taking a guess at this but I'm pretty sure you can't get ammo thru the U.S. mail. On the other hand, UPS ships all the time. I get most of my ammo online and it comes UPS.

There are no South Carolina restrictions. Federal law prohibits ammunition from being sent through US Mail. Almost all ammo gets shipped UPS ground because FEDEX requires HAZMAT certification and UPS does not.

There are no restritions in SC about Ordering Small Arms Ammunition.
Most places will require you to show identication/proof of age when ordering.

As to shipping, UPS is the only way to go.
I wonder how much business FEDEX lost when they started requiring the HAZMAT fee.

This is where I go but I drive there. They also ship. I picked up 9mm for 16.5 cents each on the first box of 1000 I got there and 18.5 a few weeks ago. Yup, its still $185 for the case of 1000.

You can order brass and bullets through the mail. I will admit that our mail lady does not like the 2000 Precision Delta bullets in the one price box. UPS has worked fine for all other ammo.

Interesting.

Scottsdaleammo.com just sent me 500 rounds of HPR 9mm TMJ through FedEx Ground. Just delivered it yesterday (Saturday).

I think a lot of it has to do with the local FEDEX and vendor and how/if they declare HAZMAT or ORM-D.

I used to get a choice between FEDEX or UPS. Don't know what changed, maybe FEDEX now interprets ammunition like the USPS as an explosive HAZMAT...

Feels like they no longer want my business.

FEDEX also requires overnight priority on Firearms shipments instead of next day, which really makes them expensive.

ADDED - doesn't mean FEDEX doesn't ship ammo, just means they can be more expensive than UPS.

Hey Fox: In addition to all of the above, try Georgia Arms. New and remanufactured ammo--very good prices and choice on calibre and quantity. In addition they are always at the gun shows in SC and you can preorder and pick up the ammo at the show. You avoid shipping charges but must pay tax. Going to show this sunday in Charleston area and will be picking up some.
