According to UPS.com guidelines, shippers put the box of ammunition in a tight-fitting box and then pack it inside an outer box fixed with partitions. Partitions help create a snug fit to prevent accidental discharge. The sealed box is marked “Cartridges, small arms” and “ORM-D” inside a rectangle that is 1/4 inch larger than the letters.
