I have questions regarding the shipping of primers. I have been to UPS and have spoken to their Hazmat experts. I am being told that they absolutely WILL NOT ship primers. I have also spoken to Fed Ex. They tell me that the primers MUST be packaged by an individual specifically trained and certified in Hazardous Materials. I live in a large metropolitan area, and am unable to find such a service that will ship primers.
I have read various forums regarding the shipping of primers. Some have stated that the penalties for unregulated shipping of primers are very severe. One person said he knew of an individual being fined $200, 000. Another said DO NOT risk shipping primers improperly. If there were a problem, you could lose everything you own in a lawsuit.
I see thousands of listings on Gunbroker for primers. I have to believe that many are shipping primers as ammunition. Perhaps the don't ask, don't tell when shipping your package containing primers is the way to go. Can someone please tell me the proper and legal way to ship primers?
