factory ammo requires hazmat?

Never bought ammo on line. I know powder and primers require a hazmat fee but what about those bulk .22 lr loads?

No hazmat on loaded ammo that I'm aware of. Bought more than 10,000 rds online over the years, only ever paid for shipping.

No hazmat on loaded ammo or even empty, but primed, cases. Hazmat on primers and powders.

Loaded ammunition does not require a hazmat declaration, but it does require a declaration that it's small arms ammunition. I don't know if that involves a surcharge.

It doesn't; the package requires a ORM-D label and it cannot go via USPS

That. ^^

Though, I believe the standards were supposed to have changed a few years back, and it may not technically be "ORM-D" any more. (Some kind of number code designation is more proper, I believe. But I could be wrong. There was a lot of blowback when the regulation change was suggested.)

I saw a cool video on testing the safety of ammo, run over, burnt, all sorts of things. In short its probably safer to ship than a can of cheese wiz..

Funny my ammo gets shipped and is dumped on the front steps without even a knock on the door. An order of plastic magazines on the other hand? Adult signature required and I can't even sign a form giving consent to leave it, almost always a takes a trip to the post office a day later - I guess a child could chew on the plastic.
