Shipping Speed & Delivery Times

For Next Business Day Air, orders placed by 5:00 p.m. CT ship out the same day (excluding major US holidays and inclement weather days). For Standard Ground and 2nd Business Day Air, the cut-off for same day shipping is 6:00 p.m. CT unless the order contains HazMat or Drop Shipped Products. For orders containing HazMat products, the cut-off for same day shipping is 5:30 p.m. CT. Drop Shipped Products usually don’t ship the same day since they are shipped separately by the Manufacturer. Once orders leave MidwayUSA, delivery times are typically as shown in the table below. However, the most accurate delivery time estimates are available on the Shopping Cart and Checkout pages once you’ve provided detailed information about the shipping destination.

Number of Business Days** for Delivery
Shipping Method Destination Time Zone AK/HI/US Territories

For all Products shipping from MidwayUSA

  • All orders ship from Columbia, MO and are delivered by either the United Parcel Service (UPS) or the United States Postal Service (USPS).
  • USPS makes final delivery for all orders shipping to a PO Box.
  • Either carrier could make final delivery for orders shipping to a street address. When USPS will make final delivery, an upgrade to UPS Ground is offered for an Additional Shipping Charge.
  • All orders have tracking information. This information is available once the order has shipped by clicking on the link in your Shipping Confirmation email or by visiting My Account > Orders. These locations also indicate the order’s specific carrier and service (UPS Ground, UPS SurePost, etc.).

For Ship Alone Products shipping from MidwayUSA

  • Since Ship Alone Products ship separately from other products, they will arrive in a separate package from the rest of your order and possibly on a different date.

For Drop Shipped Products shipping directly from the manufacturer:

  • Since Drop Shipped Products ship separately from the Manufacturer, they will arrive in a separate package from the rest of your order and probably on a different date.
  • Carriers and shipping services vary as these are chosen by the Manufacturer. Additional information regarding delivery of Drop Shipped Products can be found on applicable Product pages.

Shipping Charge Calculation

  • Shipping Charge Total = Per Order Charge based on Total Order Weight + (Total Order Weight x Per Pound Charge) + Any Additional Shipping Charges
  • Shipping Charges are based on the Total Order Weight plus any Additional Shipping Charges for UPS Final Delivery Upgrades, Delivery to AK, HI & US Territories (for orders over 1 Pound), Large or Extra-Large/Irregular Shape Products and HazMat Products.
  • The Total Order Weight is determined by adding all individual product Shipping Weights together (which includes the product’s packaging as it sits on our shelf), adding the weight of the shipping box and packing materials, and rounding that value up to the next whole number (except for orders weighing less than 1 Pound, which aren’t rounded).
  • A product’s Shipping Weight is shown in the "Delivery Information" section of each Product Page.
  • The Total Order Weight and all other Shipping Charge elements are shown individually on the Shopping Cart Page.
  • The weight of the shipping box and packing materials depend on the size and weight of the products ordered. For example, our smallest products sometimes ship in a padded envelope, which weighs about 1 ounce, while our largest products ship in a box that weighs just under 3 pounds.
  • There is no "Per Pound" charge for orders weighing less than 1 pound.
  • Products that are designated as “Ships Alone” (ships from MidwayUSA, separate from other products) or “Drop Shipped” (ships from Manufacturer, separate from other products) may incur separate "Per Order" and "Per Pound" charges. These products are designated as such in the "Delivery Information" section of each Product Page.
  • Reloading Primers ship from MidwayUSA, separately from non-Reloading Primer products. If an order contains Reloading Primers and non-Reloading Primer products, each group of products will incur separate "Per Order" and "Per Pound" charges.
  • Reloading Powder ships separately from non-Reloading Powder products and from a separate location. If an order contains Reloading Powder and non-Reloading Powder products, the Additional Shipping Charge for Reloading Powder is added to the other Shipping Charges associated with that order.
  • For products that are out of stock (backorders), there is a separate Shipping Charge calculation. These products ship together once they are all received or once they have been at MidwayUSA for 90 days.
  • Carriers have a lower threshold for classifying orders as “Large” when they ship via air. Therefore, orders shipping 2nd Day Air and Next Day Air that are over 4,000 cubic inches incur additional shipping charges.

Products Designated as Free Shipping

  • Free Shipping only applies to products designated as "Free Shipping" on orders of $25 or more.
  • Additional Shipping Charges for UPS Final Delivery upgrades, Delivery to AK, HI & US Territories (for orders over 1 Pound), Large orders shipping 2nd Business Day Air and Next Business Day Air, Large or Extra-Large/Irregular Shape Products and HazMat Products are still applicable for products designated as "Free Shipping".
  • Free Shipping is only available to AK, HI & US Territories for orders under 1 Pound with USPS Final Delivery. Orders over 1 Pound going to these destinations ship per the Shipping Charges in the Shipping Rate Chart, including the Additional Charge for AK, HI & US Territories.
  • If an order contains one or more products designated as "Free Shipping", and there are NO Non-Free-Shipping products and/or NO Additional Shipping Charges on the order, there are NO Shipping Charges associated with the order.
  • If an order contains one or more products shown as "Free Shipping" and there ARE other Non-Free-Shipping products and/or Additional Shipping Charges on the order, the incremental "Per Order", "Per Pound" and Additional Shipping Charges associated with the Non-Free-Shipping products are added to the Shipping Charges.

These products must ship UPS Ground with an automatic upgrade charge if applicable.
