Finally was able to get to a "Large" UPS Hub near Albany airport and ship it out. My Labels were sufficient and woman at the counter was very helpful.

Cost $11.50.  An estimate to ship a 5,000 rd case is $40.  Seems very high when we either get free shipping or $15 direct from distributors.

Yep... heavy shipments, going ground... will be expensive. 

The cheap rate from the distributors is baked into their price you pay.

Forty bucks shipping for a case of .22 sounds right. It's all brass and lead.

UNREAL

And they are helping to ship the Covid Vaccine ?

Will try to find another Hub tomorrow.
if you know the weight,,   go online and create your own account and print your own label, drop off at the hub or catch a driver

UPS can be very generous w/ discounts to volume dealers,  

very generous, however they expect you to use only them for everything you ship
