absolutely the size that gets you.

 

thats why when i ship a gun i try to make the package as short as possible and (like was mentioned taking the stock off)

and well padded on the ends.

 

i have tried to ship a gun before and the lady said "if it was a 1/4" shorter it would ship for $30 instead of $55 or $60

so i went outside and very gently squeezed down the package a bit against the building walked back in and ….bam…. $30 shipping LOL

I used Fedex last week and it was less than I had expected. I already had one of the double boxes that a rifle had been sent to me in. Of course there are other costs to shipping, such as bubble wrap and so on. I do break down the rifles so that if a box is dropped there is less chance of it breaking the stock.
