Sources of HDRs outside of the US

Post by MREsForDays » Tue May 12, 2020 9:43 am

Hi all,
I'm looking to add a HDR Ration (I don't mind whether it is the Yellow or Salmon one, I know the Yellow one is more rare) to my collection.
The salmon ones are easily obtainable through US eBay for a good price, however shipping costs a lot to the UK, and I have heard MREs and Customs don't go well.
Anyone know of any UK/EU sources of the HDRs for less than it would cost to get from the US (Costs about £36 inc. delivery from US)?
Cheers.

£36 plus the $6 base cost is good for the UK, a while ago someone got £50 each for a load, your probably better off just buying from the U.S if you cant find one quick
Check out my ORP menu spreadsheet: https://bit.ly/2NqUFRX | I have: | British 24HR Box Rations | French RCIRs | Type I EPA |Danish Rations

Alright! Didn't really know how much these things sell for, as the only real place I have found them on is eBay. What's the risk about the Ration being ruined by Customs? I have heard a few nightmares about it.

Make sure the carrier will ship!
By now there is no postage between America/Canada and EU
