Yup!! i've been ordering RWS primers from them for 3yrs now, they've never charged a hazmat fee for primer shipment. It's my opinion that everyone else is taking advantage of us in that loaded ammo has primers in it, but no hazmat fee is charged for shipping it. It also has powder in it, but the reason there is obvious. I just ordered 1000 rem 9½ primers, w/ shipping, total cost was $24.50 which is about the same cost as they were when I could buy them locally, which I can't now. For some reason no one carries rem primers here any more. :cry:

Primers are not considered HazMat by UPS. I have never had to pay that rediculous fee on them.

This entire HazMat thing is a farce.

Loaded ammo is not HazMat, bullets (other than tracer) and cases are not HazMat.

Primers are not HazMat.

Primered cases are not HazMat.

Powder is HazMat?

Nah...it's just another way UPS can up their profits.

UPS has started charging a $5 per item "remote location" fee for everything that comes to me. I am 15 miles off the major highway in northern Montana! That is remote?

I specify FedEx as a shipper with USPS as a secondary shipper for everything I order via phone, mail or internet.

Not only is UPS sucking in the $$$ with this, but if you go to different suppliers you will find different "regulations"! Some are charging a HazMat fee for every case of factory packed powder, whereas other will ship up to 70 pounds of powder for one fee. Some are charging the HazMat for primers, and most reliable ones are not. Some are even starting to charge customers HazMat for cleaning solutions! Some state that primers and powder cannot be shipped in the same package, so they will try and suck two HazMat fees out of customers.

I have even noticed that some suppliers are charging a $30 HazMat fee instead of $20.

Talk about some outfits killing the goose...

The whole thing is a bunch of crap! Just like the welding supply outfit that charges a 10.00 hazardous fee on mig wire! I asked them what the **** was so hazardous about a 30 pound spool of wire? The reply was that it produces toxic fumes when you weld...... :? :? :? There's a friggin farse if I ever heard of one!
