Fuck Y'all I'm From Texas!
Just picked up another dozen ammo cans.
While they arent exactly cheap they're bad ass!!! New seals and new paint.
I had already purchases 6 of em and was impressed with the quality so I picked up a dozen more.
They're great for storing everything from ammo to seasonings and shooting supplies!
They go for 36 bucks a can.

$36? They better be the large size at that price. There's .30 cal, .50 cal and 40mm sizes. I call 'em small, medium and large.

And I buy plastic ones, in small size, for $2.99. They seal against water just as well, and they don't rust. Sure, they would burn in a fire, but how often are your ammo boxes in a fire?

USGI or Chinese knockoffs? Hate to say it, but those Chinese make a decent ammo can. All of mine are surplus but I've seen the Chinese-made cans in Wally World.

They hold over 1k rounds of 5.56....
I have some of the plastic ammo cans and they dont even compare. The only thing I use those for is shit I really dont care about.

The plastic ones are good for holding Coleman lamp parts, bolts, nuts, and screws, or dildos. I do have one large 13" by 8" MCM Casegard box that I got from a yard sale, but it has 2500 pieces of mixed .223/5.56 brass that I found somewhere. The damned 5.56 is USGI, so the primers were crimped.

I used one of the plastic cans to make a camp shower with hot water.

I have several dozen GI ammo cans for my long term storage ammo fort.

However, I use these plastic ones from Bass Pro Shop for range ammo.
