Overrated. Round nose will be easier and the tip of FMJ rifle ammo will Peirce the plastic bag. You will need to use thin peices of cardboard to cover the sharp tips.
I found a bag of 7.62x39 ammo loosely wrapped in a goat skin cloth also wrapped in a burlap bag. My afghan soldiers suspected it was a Mujhaden cache from the 80's and the fight against the Russians. It went bang.
I would can it. Wolf/golden tiger/Tula can be packed 1600 rds per fat .50.
I can also. But I do vacuum pack 100 rounds of 9mm for the GHB. It takes up less space and makes little to no noise.
A 'friend of mine' does that for his GHB, that's how I found out about the pointed vs. round nose, but he vacume packs 15 rounds at a time so when needs to tear into a bag he has fewer rounds that are loose and flopping around.
For the GHB wouldn't it be better to just store them in magazines?
As long as you rotate the mags every once in awhile. Ive seen mags loaded and stored for extended periods end up with compressed springs that didnt play nice when finally used.
Back on topic, does anyone see any ammo here? I sure see plenty when I see an ammo can.
No, you're doing the opposite of what you should be doing. We've been over and over this here. So long as a spring stays static within its design range, it will not wear out. That's fully loaded, half loaded or empty.
It's cycling the spring that wears it out - say from full to empty and back.
You can leave a mag loaded for 100 years and if kept in a good climate so it doesn't rust, the spring will be just a strong as the day it was loaded.
Wouldn't vacuum pack it unless I was planning on burying it. And since I don't plan on burying any guns or ammo (yet), I also store mine in cans...
Not in my experience. I've seen this happen with 1911, Glock and AK mags. Theory is wonderful but practical application and experience wins out for me.
