What's a good way to store reloaded rounds (.223) other than loose in a storage box. I have too many to buy a bunch of little plastic boxes for them.
If you have to move around in a SHTF situation, you are adding additional weight by storing your ammo supply in magazines. Depending on if and how (and a bunch of other factors) you move around, that added weight isn't necessarily your friend. Just something to consider.I think if your storing ammo for shtf then what better way then storing them in loaded 30rd magazines? My goal is to add 10 loaded magazines a year untill I need them!
I like your ideas Only one problem though, you forgot to show the wheels on the bottoms of those ammo cans. I have the green plastic ones Cabela's ships in and when I put 1,000 rnds. of 7.62x39 in one I couldn't lift it. Maybe I should get smaller cans.
Would you P.M me a copy of your sleeve dementions?
Try this:I was hopping there might be a source of commercial type cardboard boxes around.
Yep, I agree with you whole heartedly! If you need to grab a big can of ammo, a .50 caliber can is just about right.Problem is with smaller cans they don't hold near enough in my opinion. The only thing Ill use a 30 cal. can if for belted ammo for my 1919.
I hate to even share this one (people might think I'm crazy) but I stock pile the 100 round trays (everyone throws away) shown in picture and then have my boys (these are the 2 younger of my 3) fill the trays instead of storing the bulk cardboard boxes. They have a lot of fun doing it and only the youngest (on the left) can't shoot yet. Then take a fat 50 cal ammo can and those trays fit perfectly inside sideways!! I forget how many I can stack but it is a lot!Another option for storage that I use for my .22lr is one of the tall plastic jars from the pub mix at Costco.
