COMMODITY: Empty primed cases meeting the criteria of Division 1.4 are not regulated as hazardous materials in domestic hazmat transportation by any mode. If it was received marked as LQ, it may be easier to reship as LQ by road/rail, but it may be worthwhile to obliterate the markings and ship as unregulated for domestic vessel for domestic air to avoid hazmat fees, particularly for air.
MODE OF TRANSPORTATION: Any mode domestically: truck, rail, vessel, air
NOTE: Empty primed brass is regulated for international transport. For vessel, if the ship is a US flag carrier, it can use the US regulations. If it is not a US flag ship, it must use the international ocean regulations. See the transport data sheets for UN 0055: Empty Primed Brass, International Ocean or UN 0055: Empty Primed Brass, International Air
