    Does anyone save/want ammo boxes/trays for their reloaded rounds.
    I have a bunch of Blazer Brass boxes and trays.
    The Blazer trays are pretty nice....hate to throw them away.

    Anyone ?

    Me too. I can be a bit of a scrounger at times, and have picked plenty of nice, clean empty boxes out of the dumpster at the range. I use them for reloads and they work great, way better than ziplok bags, but now I have so many that I have garbage bags full in the attic. My wife wants me to put them back in the dumpster but I have a hard time trashing something usable.

    Bunch a hoarders around here. Makes my heart smile. :D

    Six months ago I took the 13 gal garbage bag I had full of those down off the shelf in the garage, separated paper/plastic and recycled them. Moving more toward the solid plastic ammo boxes.

    Those plastic trays can be used to sort different sizes of brass.

    I save them too. I use them to give reloads to friends.

    All my personal loads go in plastic hard boxes or bulk loads like 9mm in 8mil bags in 50cal cans.

    I used to save them for the same reason, just hated to toss them but long ago went to commercial plastic boxes for my own loads. I finally gave in and just toss them at the range now. Would love to give them away if I knew where. Love to see stuff reused if possible.

    Two of the plastic bottom parts you threw away, put together with a wide rubber band around them makes a plastic ammo box...:s0155:

    I use the back side of them for lube or cleaner that I can dip Q-tips into while gun cleaning.

    I tie them to a wire hanging down in front of a thick plywood backstop in my garage and every so often take pot shots with an airgun from the other side of my garage. They flop around nicely when you aim for the corners. When they get chewed up, I replace with a new one.
