I need to find shipping boxes that fit snugly over 30 cal and 50 cal cans. Any ideas or links would be helpful.

Uline is a huge seller of cardboard boxes and I have purchased from them.

However, if you only want a few boxes, then you are better off looking in your yellow pages for a distributor in St. Louis. Uline would be a place to buy quantities.

Get free boxes at the USPS website.

...and they wonder why they are going broke, dumbasses.

Uline has great prices, but they get you on the shipping charges. Another option is just dropping into a local UPS store. Take a can so they can find one that fits snug around it.

Thanks for all the help guys. U-line worked. The shipping charges were fair. UPS stores will not ship ammo. USPS will not ship ammo. I was going to have to drop it off at the UPS hub anyway so no biggie.

Thanks again.
