    A couple pointers for those who don't mind saving a little scratch on shipping.

    First the USPS has priority mail regional rate boxes that are cheaper than the medium and larger flat rate boxes. There is a weight limit and you can order the boxes for free from the USPS. You can't print shipping labels from the USPS Click N Ship page. In order to bring up the priority regional rate option you need to enter the package weight. There may be a slight savings over the counter price and you get free tracking to boot.

    Also you can print labels from PayPal using www.paypal.com/shipnow Again there is a slight savings and free tracking.

    I haven't ordered from

    them in years. There is shipping and then there is handling charges. I'm not sure if they tack the latter on or not.

    Estimated shipping at checkout was about $9.50 for a 50 pack of about $50 brass. Will see what actual is at time of shipping.

    flat rate small box is 7.05, 12.85 for medium at the business source. But, I think they use UPS? In actuality a business can charge what they want for shipping and handling...cost of box, packing peanuts, etc.

    Yes. I was wondering if they'll use a SFRB. Of course shipping materials if purchased need to be recovered. Some who sell on eBay and other places expect to be paid for their time to go to the PO as well, tho places with large volumes get stuff picked up. A full time employee who packages and ships stuff likely has his costs figured in both product markup and shipping charges. Places like Graf have a flat fee of $7.99 and wisely use the regional rate boxes. Another outfit has a flat $4.99 shipping fee and good prices and uses the regional rate boxes. Still the sale price of the brass + shipping was lower than the regular price of the brass alone at other places so was a decent buy.

    The Nosler brass was in a box which necessitated using a regional rate USPS box.
