I'm surprised there isn't a truck shipping company there. I would think primers would be a lot harder to ship than powder. Who do people that sell fireworks use for shipping? That may be your best bet.

UPS handles powder. He need to take it to a UPS shipping locale and fill out the paperwork and pay the hazmat fee. Its around $25.00 and you can ship up to 64lbs of powder and 5K primers under one hazmat. FYI, the primers should have been sent under a hazmat class as well.

Thank You for responding, the connecticut man & myself both contacted ups hazmat & were both told unless he has a contract with ups or has taken the hazmat training course they will not ship. & sofar he has not found a trucking co. or secondary retail store that will ship.

A trucker with a haz-mat cert. should be able to help if he knows one, correct??
