Is the new label if you can decipher the gibberish from the bureaucrats.

Does anyone have any idea what "limited quantities" signifies? That doesn't sound promising.

The “new” label has been out there for a while and not much has changed. It still needs to go common carrier ground, US only (no Alaska or Hawaii), with a 66 lb limit. You can read more here:

49 CFR 173.156 - Exceptions for limited quantity and ORM.

... and here:

Shipping Ammunition: UPS - United States

I posted about this a while back as well. Not much interest and was told it already was in effect.

But the UPS site still says the Old 'ORM-D' label is being replaced as of
Jan 1, 2121. Not that the regulation is already in place.
Probably the new symbol is accepted at this point.
But like the rest of these operations, you usually get blank stares from the counter clerks when you place arms or ammo in front of them for shipment.
Better to have a bit of knowledge going in.

ORM-D - Ground Service: UPS - United States

The 'new' label shown on UPS's site is a plain white diamond with black border lines and blackened top & bottom points. No lettering.

Shipping Ammunition: UPS - United States

Or is it the one PPS1980 shows?
