Ammo can thread.

I got tired of cardboard boxes and found ammo cans for what I assume is a decent price up in frozen hell land.

How do you organize your cans? Do you use them for non-ammo related can purposes?

Not sure if Canada Costco has these but $20 for a pair of 50 cal and 30 cal cans. I have couple of cans that holds loaded mags.

I got mine for $4 each. They're obviously used, but still in ok shape so I cleaned them out of their stock. I thought you guys could get cans for pennies.

If I looked around I could probably get used ones for what you paid, maybe a bit more as there's higher demand here. I think most people buy brand new ones though because the gaskets aren't fucked.

I'm eventually going to sandblast, repaint, and probably go over the gaskets with some silicone.

Honestly I'm not really bothered by the lack of perfect water-tightness. I'm not really gonna go swimming with those cans.

I don't know about everyone else, but ammo cans are retard fucking expensive in Montana at least. Everybody wants like $20 minimum for their dented little .30 caliber cans.

Thankfully I was a weirdo as a kid and bought a variety of cans at gunshows and have a couple laying around. The only "good" deal that I've gotten in the last 5ish years were some 40mm cans at $6 a piece, but I also hate them because they don't have a handle on the top.

The ones at Costco are the cheapest I can find locally.

But some of the "new production" cans are made in China of cheaper materials than USGI surplus.

I'm jealous.

I just have a misc sack of ammo.

I don't know about Costco but a lot of the ones I see for sale online all the time are made in Taiwan by companies that have US government contracts for their manufacture, made to those specifications.

It was either Cabela's or Dicks that had flimsy China ones I saw.

Well them 99 syrup yen special Cambodian tire shelves seem to be holding up.

They're rated for a shitton of weight, quite a bit more than I have on them, and feature KEYMOD shelf spacing. You can also set them up in a modular horizontal arrangement for extra tactical.
