Default Transporting ammo ?

Hey all, I've searched and found either old info, or info pertaining to firearms. I will be visiting home this winter and plan on bringing my surplus ammo only (no firearms) back to my current place of residence. I have a trunk and plan to place the ammo there but it's over 1,000 rds .308, 2,000 rds 7.62x39, 1,000+ rds of 7.62x54. How do I go about doing this without ending up like a Brian Aitken?

Traveling through NJ, NY, MA. (The east coast Comm. bloc satellite states)

Any shove in the right direction would help, thank you and Merry Christmas.

Don't speed, and gift wrap the ammo boxes.

I'd place them as far forward in the trunk as possible. You don't want that much weight cantilevered over the rear axle.

Or you could ship them via UPS.

Thanks Crane, but I think my bail in NJ would still be cheaper than shipping it via UPS..

Keep the total weight of any one shipment below 66 pounds, ship GROUND, or you trigger the HAZMAT charges. List contents as Cartridges, Small Arms.

And here is your label-
