Just made my order for 4, 8 lb containers from Natchez.....$517 shipped to Lynden Transport's Fife Washington terminal. From Fife, Powders will be barged in a Hazmat container to Anchorage and then trucked to Fairbanks for an additional $120 (100 lbs or less). For a total of $637 or about $160 per 8lb. container. Did not order primers, they cannot be shipped in the same container, so, another fee of $120 for a separate Hazmat container would be charged from Fife to Fbks. The biggest hassle was finding out the hazmat classifacation code. I ended up getting the code from Hodgdons. You would need to provide this code when setting up shipment from the Fife Washington to Fbks. leg of the journey. Powders ordered were H380, IMR4064,Unique, and XMR-5744. This all seemed fairly easy and reasonably priced at this time. Shipping from Fife usualy takes about 7 days......We shall see...........The lady at Hodgdon said there WILL be a shortage........And we **** sure cannot depend on Sportsmans Warehouse......
Hazmat shipping classifacation code (hazard classifacation United Nations number) is; Smokeless Powder for small arms, 4.1 N.A. #3178,pgI
You will need this code when setting up shipping from Fife Washington terminal.
Phone # for Lynden Transport in Fife Washington; 800-478-5535
Phone # for Natchez shooting supply; 1-800-251-7839
When shipping through the Fife terminal, have your chosen supplier label your package; To; Joe Blow, in care of Lynden Transport etc.
All in all seems fairly straight forward, although this is the only time I have ever had to do this......I think I have all my ducks in a row.........THNX
