Shipping brass

Post by Circuit Rider » Sun Sep 13, 2009 7:37 am

Gents, I have some brass cleaned and primed I need to ship to a friend. Am I correct, I have to send it hazmat or deprime it to send it. If I have to deprime them, is there a safe way to do it? Thanks, Circuit Rider

Can't answer the hazmat question.

I have placed primed cases in a plastic loading-block and put water in each case (afew drops) and let them soak over-night. Them pour it out and deprime as normal. I know others that deprime without doing this and they get along ok :o . There could be other ways to do it.

I have deprimed life primers with my hand tool and never set one off, then reused them and they worked fine.
when you deprime use glove and safety glasses works fine. When I first started reloading 44 years ago I had a
lee loader and I set a few primers off with it without an harm to me or anything else. Lorne

That sticker says ORM-D, and it can be done by hand according to this...

"Material marked ORM-D and shipped by surface transportation do not require hazardous shipping papers, simply an ORM-D Consumer Commodity marking on the box. This marking can either be in the form of a ORM-D sticker, or written by hand. If written by hand the letters "ORM-D" must be enclosed by a rectangle."
