    I just stacked another spam can of Tulammo 7.62X39 deep. Now I need about 500 more rounds of 5.56.

    I use mostly steel cans, different sizes. Some plastic for shotgun ammo. I put one or 2 Silica Gel Packets in every container & store about 1/2 in a dry basement 1/2 in other locations. I keep a min of 5k for each cal. & more of the 22lr. Over the years the ammo has looked & fired as new.

    Not unlike dinner, I prefer to make mine fresh when I need it. I store major supplies however I don't keep more than a couple hundred of any caliber made up in advance.

    In our designated safe room I have concrete shelves where I keep steel ammo cans, on bottom I got those big knee high ones, I not only color coated my ammo cans ( maybe this is stupid ) but I also gave them needed spray paint numbers. In our safe room we keep 6 different ammo can colors that are somewhat organized mostly thrown in at random. For us Gold designates 10mm, Silver designates 45 and Bronze for 9mm. Whereas F.D.E is for 762x51, O.D green is for 556 and White is for 12 gauge.

    In my gun room I keep most of my playing around ammo in either mags or stacked boxes on shelves, for me personally I hold a certain love for plastic ammo cans because it was my first type of ammo can that I got. I find them to be better for water protection, I keep one stashed in my an old garage on our property with some of our six main ammo types. I also keep a plastic ammo can in my gun room and on our back porch.

    But I keep a metal 50 cal can in my truck with extra ammo for my Scar, Glock and 12 gauge. Metal ones work better for more abusive situations, plus could always serve as a wailing weapon themselves, plastic ones might break if you hit a hard enough head.

    Yes sir, 45-70: 300gr Remington JHP in nickel brass over H-4198 powder with Winchester primers. The top picture are 444's with 265gr JFP over the same powder & primers. So much fun to shoot & hunt with!

    After 20 yrs of being a Gunnersmate in the US Navy, handling and storing countless cans and cases of ammo (and I do mean countless, worked at weapons depot for 6 of the 20 yrs). I prefer my male version of tupperware containers Steel ammo cans!
