    Aloha surplus has .30 and .50 surplus cans. Andy & Bax as well and usually cheaper than Aloha. I've bought from both.

    That's probably your best bet if you want originals, prepare to pay for nice ones. But if you're just after metal, bimart has some good prices on new ones.

    I usually buy mine at gun shows. Sometimes that all I end up buying, but I still enjoy looking at everything.

    +1 with Sparky! I've usually found the best prices at the Expo shows, where I go to buy bulk ammo. I use my Bimart card for a discount on the entry fee and chalk up the parking fee to entertainment.

    I know you asked about used. But Bi-Mart has new ones on sale for $15 until the end of the month (usually $20). Not a great deal, but all that I know of (would love to hear about other sources as I need a few more).
