    Quick question - Anybody know how many loose 7.62x39 rounds will fit in a standard US 50 cal ammo can? Hoping to fit 1k in there.

    It has been a while since I did it but I think it is about 800 rds. You could get them in a Fat 50 though.

    I put 960 rounds, boxed, in a single can.

    Mark is right. It has been a while since I did it but now that he said it I remember.
