Pack it into an old pressure cooker, these are sturdy and hold up to the shipping companies abusing them. If there is extra room inside, fill it with other things like scrap wire, old batteries to fill the voids.

It's an old post, but I figured for longevity sake, I'd reply. As far as I know, you can't ship it unless it has a hazmat credentials. Why are you trying to get around it? There's a reason that it's that way. You can ship gunpowder in ammunition, but that's it unless it has the hazmat credentials. I know it's expensive, and it's a pain that the fee is as much to ship one pound of gunpowder as it does for 50 lbs. That's why it makes sense to buy in larger bulk amounts, or buy local. There's no way around it, and to encourage you to do anything else would be illegal. I don't know exactly what the punishment is, but if you were trying to ship hazardous material without it being labeled as such, I'm sure the trouble and fines you could get into would be a lot worse than paying the hazmat fee.
