U.S. to Finland mailing times (in your experience)?

Have you sent mail to Finland from the U.S. with Priority Mail International? Has that ever taken longer than 10 business days? (No customs value involved, in my case - just a standard flat envelope of papers with no value.)

I'll be mailing an envelope of papers from Philadelphia to a city that's 100km (60 miles) north of Helsinki.
I hope to use Priority Mail International, which the USPS claims (but doesn't guarantee) has a delivery time of "6 to 10 business days" to "major markets."
I need some time to finish the papers, so what I'm looking to figure out is the latest safe date when I can mail in order to have the envelope arrive on or before Tuesday the 30th of September.
(There's also a "3 to 5 business days" Express service that's much more expensive -- I may end up using that if I want more time, but I hope I can just use Priority.)
