USPS Priority mail for me.

It's been my experience that UPS can "eff up" a county fair.

Re: Whom Would You Use-Shipping

so far it sounds like ups isn't fairing too well. If you have any good or bad experiences with shippers please feel free to share.

Re: Whom Would You Use-Shipping

I ordered 3 boxes of 338 lapua brass from a supplier plus a few other things. When ups delivered the box was retaped and upon opening it I found 3 individual pcs of brass. No lapua boxes nothing, just 3 pcs.

A week later the ups delivery driver dropped off a package and another pc of brass, he said it was rolling around in his truck. No $hit where are the other 296 rolling around?

Sorry to hear that Cowboy. That's a handsome amount of money down the tube. I wouldn't doubt 296 of them made their way into some web auction/sale or something like that. Were you able to file a claim and get compensated? I hope so, again sorry this happened.

No question I use FedEx.

I would not use UPS if it was free.

Yep supplier filed claim, and reembursed me. Problem was at the time it was the only 338 lapua brass anywhere I could find.

I sent a carefully packed rifle USPS to Texas and it arrived with the end of the box split and the barrel sticking out several inches.

Never had any problem with UPS (so far...knock wood).
