    I found that between shooting a partial box on range days, having old "carry" ammo around, and then the misc rounds that find their way into drawers, I needed an inexpensive (free) shortage container for ammo..

    It dawned on me while going through the recycling.. Peanut butter jars, plastic drink mix jars, mayo jars are all perfect! I rescued 2 power-aid mix containers, wrote on them with grease pencil, added a couple of silica moisture absorbing packs, and viol√°!
    image.jpg They held #150 .45 ACP rounds, and #250 9mm rounds, I'll bet they hold 200 .40 S&W rounds..
    image.jpg Silica packs were the wife's idea..
    Quick, simple, and best of all FREE!

    I do the same with those Costco cashew & peanut containers as they are large enough to hold small high end wood cutoffs for future projects in the past.
    But since I have ventured into the reloading field they hold quite a bit of brass too.:cool:

    I use the snap top clear containers my dogs treats come in. No need to mark them as I can see what is in them.

    Only if he hits 1.21 gigawatts of power in his flux capacitor.
    Otherwise its just a regular 80+ mph trip down the highway.

    I have the clear 1 gal containers w/handle that bulk snacks come in, they are life savers.
    They hold 10 bxs of 22LR or 223.
    I would like to find a replacement for 30 cal ammo cans

    .50cal ammo cans?o_O

    I store those pesky loose rounds and partial boxes in zip lock bags and keep them in a .50cal can.

    Unused pain cans, not the ones that have already had paint in them.

    "Pain" cans should only be used to preserve and store whoop-a$$. :D

    Don't use bear spray cans to preserve your ammo.
