    How Do You Store Your Ammo?

    I buy in bulk quantity for several calibers. All of my ammo is then transferred into ammo cans and labeled with a silver sharpie. What's your favorite method of storage?

    When I store in bulk, out of the box, I'll tape the actual label identifying the lot to the can as well. This way, if there's ever a problem - or a recall, I know exactly what I have and can contact the manufacturer.

    IF....I had any ammo...

    I'd store some in a 24 gun cheap safe that I'd get at The Tractor Supply, some in plastic 50 cal sized ammo cans that Cabelas used to give away free if you bought 1000 rounds or more, some in metal 50 cal sized cans that I'd buy at surplus stores and some in various places around the house, vehicle and land (in sealed PVC pipe.

    IF..

    In the original packages and into ammo cans.

    Range ammo in the ammo room and quality ammo in a gun safe.

    Ammo cans are stacked according to caliber from small to large. I basically put the same amount of a particular caliber in each can so a quick count of the cans gives me my inventory.

    Plastic for rimfire and metal for all others.

    I use ammo cans and OME packaging. I put it in old freezers with a Remington Dehumidifier. You must make sure the old freezers is dry and not one that has in the walls soaked. it work every well. The up right makes getting to stuff you need easy to get to .
    On advantage to steel is corrosion will find a home just they way it works it will over many years find the cans first .
    Just something to think about , I have a bunch of pre 1950 30-06 in the boxes it can in cardboard , that is a as good today as the day it was made.

    I store mine in 30 and 50 cal cans which I am running low on. I need to get on the stick before November.
