A sticky thread stays at the top of the page, even after new threads are started. What I meant was is this thread is now a sticky, and stays at the top where it's got the best chance of being read.

Thanks for the head's up.

Bye

Finally spoke with someone the other day and they want me to ship the ammo to them prepaid courtesy of them. The only problem is i'm not home when the ups guy shows up. Thanks for the info.

i just shipped some ammo back to federal a couple weeks ago and i was not required to be there. i just marked the box as they described and ups picked it up from my porch and left the tag with the tracking #. now when they drop some new stuff back off i'll have to have someone there to receive it.

UPS dropped ammo purchased on Winchester's "Black Friday" and I did not have to sign for it. The ammo was shipped from Cabella's. This might be the reason.
