Default Palmetto not shipping ammo even if billing address is in restricted city

I thought I would order some ammo from PSA and have it shipped to my work address. I live in a ammo restricted area but work in an area thats not restricted. This has never been a problem for SGAmmo, The Armory, Freedom muntions, etc. Is this something new? I emailed CS and will wait to see what they say. May have to start ordering stuff else where

Hmmm, I just got some from them yesterday shipped to my non-restricted work address.

They won't ship an order where the ship to or billing address is restricted.

I called my CC company and added a PO box in a non-restricted city as a billing address.

They changed it this year. I've ordered ammo from them in the past but when I tried in January it got the kibosh. Oh well, they're doing good enough, they don't need my business.

Same thing is true on Brownells. I tried ordering some restricted items on their website as a gift for a friend to be picked up in their retail store, but they won't let the transaction through because my billing address is in a restricted area.

With so short of a time left in the year its probably moot, but I know several people that ran into this same problem. They simply rented a "Real Street Address" PO Box....in a non restricted zip code, picked out one credit card to use....submitted a change of address and.....problem solved. They shared the cost of the PO box and had whatever they ordered shipped to a non restricted address, mine being one of them. I know they never had anything shipped to the PO box. I had Brownells refuse to ship 10rd Magpul Magazines to me. I called after repeated attempts and was told I had a restricted zip code. Midway had no problem. I had my friends order and ship to one of the addresses they were using and ....no problem...so go figure.
