I dont own any.
I want to buy 10 for now and im not sure what to buy and from who. Could you help me out?
I prefer new and Military Issue.
I already stacked 500 oz of Silver and now im ready to invest in ammo for the next couple of years.
Is there an infographic on this subject?
>Metal can +size
>ammo type for size
>how much ammo fits and its current cost
>silica packets for extra moisture control for long storage
this one seems cool for the range but not long storage
Just buy ammunition in bulk that comes prepackaged in cans.
from who satan?
Ive never bought bulk ammo before and there was too many different options to make an uninformed decision.
Give me the brand and grain for each of the main calibers
Jesus dude do your own research lol. Just stack as much FMJ and increased penetration ammo for your main rifle and some FMJ and HP for your pistol
"Main calibers" You didn't lie on the "Are you over 18?" pop-up did you?
If you're not old enough for Dad to buy you a can of bulk ball ammo what are you asking us for?
762? 7.62mm? Which one? 51? 39? 54? 25?
If you type Bulk Ammo in to Goygle it'll give you dozens of reputable sites?
ok goyim heres the issue
>practice ammo vs green tips
dont know what to get for practice and what to get for armageddon
look at that lucky duck, I bet Israel sure is proud of him
He's retarded, but if you have to ask what kind of .22 he's referring to, so are you.
I HATE THE ANTICHRIST! I HATE THE ANTICHRIST! I HATE THE ANTICHRIST! I HATE THE ANTICHRIST!
anyone buy from these guys?
Thats very expensive (especially if you have to also pay shipping). Our local Walmart has 50 cal cans for like $8 ea.
metal military grade?
$18 at Harbor Freight.
Yes, metal with rubber seal.
Military grade? Lol. I take it you don't know anything about typical military procurement. Its literally the cheapest bidder than makes a functioning product. They're not buying some kind of ultra high end platinum cans.
As long as you're actually using it as an ammo can (and not trying to make a 3 story ammo can house), a can is a can. That hinge + latch design can probably support more than you can lift. You're can physically cram enough stuff in there to break the lid when carrying if you're actually putting ammo in it.
I carry 4 cases of beer bottles up a flight of stairs at work when im feeling froggy
3 cases all day
You're missing the point. You figure the heaviest possible ammo by volume in the densest pack configuration is maybe going to squeeze 75 lbs into a can. Thats the point where you literally can't put another single round in.
Id bet even the carry handle / lid is capable of supporting 200, 300+ lbs which isn't physically possible to stick in the can if you're putting actual ammo in it.
I've used the Walmart cans for range trips numerous times 100% packed full without issue. The point is that design in general is already plenty robust. Theres no reason to go crazy trying to seek out some special high end "military grade" version.
I think im gonna go with the Harbor Freight ones
Its not about Military, I hate those satan worshippers, its about long term storage.
The plastic ones are not good for long term storage
They dont seem stackable though which would be a bummer
I never advocated for plastic. I'm saying the metal cans are all basically the same for the use youre looking for. They're all the same copied design which is extremely robust, even if they're made with the cheapest steel. Its literally just going to sit there most of its life.
Some may be a little better or worse in terms of seal material, but frankly the old military ones are often worse due to age anyways. Always go overkill on desiccant (or bag + desiccant if you're ultra paranoid), and it'll outlast you.
*You can't physically
Ammo cans are the exception anon
Honestly, the OP isn't going to war, he's literally just storing ammo. Just about any can construction besides wet cardboard is going to hold up just fine for this purpose.
Doesn't even need a can - a sealed plastic bag with some desiccant would even be functionally sufficient in this case.
its slightly above average but thats fine its like 12-20 bucks a can.elsewhere generic used cans are around 10. 15 bucks isnt bad for new. though shipping probably kills the deal pretty hard.
That's exactly my point. Shipping for 1 can is going to be close to the whole value of the can. Due to the bulk, shipping a whole bunch of them is still going to be pricy compared to the low cost per can. Unless the OP lives hundreds of miles from civilization, theres got to be a local place that has these cheaper than buying online.
>buying chink ammo cans
typical goy slave who complains about different countries when his own is the most dangerous to his own freedoms
why does every gay with a video on the net have to have these blaring intros will shitty ass music. Just get to the point, we can scroll forward and backward and dont kneed any gay ass intros
>Listening to theis video while in bed the person is talking within reason suddenly they cut to some gay ass music that 3 times as loud as the gay talking. Makes you jump out of bed to lower the volume then the fag comes back on and you cant hear him. FUck this shit! Everybdys famous!
If the sole purpose is storage, you don't want 30 cal cans. They're great to have a couple for transporting to the range as theyre nice and light, but they dont hold much. As such, when you're storing them, they're not very space efficient (not to mention you'll need more desiccant).
Most people that store ammo use 50 cal cans. They're about double the width and even fully loaded are still able to be carried one handed (but are probably about the max you'd want to carry over longer distance). They're also sold practically everywhere. I got most of mine from Walmart as they were cheaper than any other place besides used ones at gun shows.
More space efficient but still fairly common would be a 20mm can. If this is storage only, its not a bad option as you can pack a ton into each. They do tend to be a lot more pricey than the other options, especially if you don't have local gun shows to buy them from.
Quantity in each varies as well: are you storing them loose or boxed, what caliber, what grain bullet (some rounds have a large variation in bullet stick out depending on grain weight), are you neatly stacking for max capacity or just tossing handfuls in? Etc
>Quantity in each varies as well: are you storing them loose or boxed, what caliber, what grain bullet (some rounds have a large variation in bullet stick out depending on grain weight), are you neatly stacking for max capacity or just tossing handfuls in? Etc
Im gonna start off with 10 .50 cal cans
Ill keep the rounds in their packaging until I need more cans or just dump them out to max the storage.
the guns i have take
Ill also be getting an M1A or Garand as well.
Probably a .44 also
i agree with the other posters, buy ammo that comes in cans. after a decade of buying ammo, theres a lot of shit thats a fairly good deal, the downside is that it comes in ammo cans. thats only a downside if you already have cans. there is no reason to buy them on their own, and definitely not that many. lurk sgammo and gundeals, look for 9mm and 556 deals that come with a steel can.
that said, if i was gonna buy new ones, I wouldnt get steel milspec ones. the MTM polymer ones with the carry-tray are way better. the only reason to get metal ones is for adding EMF gaskets to make a cheap faraday cage.
>the MTM polymer ones with the carry-tray are way better.
I would like to stick with metal, my entire house is a faraday cage anyway
fair point. MTM cans are fairly reliable, but the occasional can will get moisture ingress. dont buy clapped out metal cans thinking they are waterproof, it has a lot to do with the quality of the seal as well. buy new if you want waterproof. me? all i care about is humidity so i toss desiccant packs in mine
The Harbor Freight cans seem pretty good
only test he didnt do was cum on it and leave it out in the sun
with storing ammo, moisture is your enemy followed by extreme temp variations.30 cal cans are for if you plan on taking it with you or are caching in different spots. .50 cal for simply storing. Buy new, and check the seals Buy nato ammo. its designed to be reliable in a wide variation in temperatures, and resistant to moisture. it comes in .45, 5.56, .308, 9mm, 12 ga. Lake City/ Winchester is the best. PMC makes 120 round pvc sealed battle packs of 5.56 om stripper clips. if you don't know how to use a stripper clip, learn. They also make boxed, sealed 200 round 5.56 battle packs to nato standards. very handy. they make the same in 9mm. use ammo seek with word filters for easy searching.
I just got mine BLEM on ebay. Also check gun shows.
Harbor Freight is my source. They are chink cans but I haven't had any issues with them. The big thing with HF is you only buy when there's a coupon. They had a 30% off one item under $20 last weekend, you buy one can and in a few years you have a row of them. Their prices have gone to shit since they opened so many more stores but you also don't have to drive as far to get to one when you need to exchange a tool.
>off topic: HF is pretty much the new Sears as far as lower tier hand tools with a lifetime warranty. Sears also sucked but craftsman was made in USA almost until the end.
50 cal M2 cans are the way to go. If you're autistic you can fit a staggering amount of ammo in one but it won't be too heavy to move from your basement to your car when you need to. I think I managed over 3k 5.56. I used election yard signs, the corrugated plastic, as separators, works awesomely. Filling one with reloading projos will make them too heavy, though.
HF cans are made in Vietnam.
They're identical in quality to the used USGI ones that are twice as much and have MRE shits inside of them. You're not patriotic for supporting some boomers gov auction side hussle.
Yes the welds are different, no they aren't weaker.
Plastic cans except the Dutch ones you don't know about are all complete garbage. Anyone who recommends them is an idiot for thinking pulling on a latch to remove your ammo can off the shelf is an acceptable design feature when every GI can has had a pull tab separate since Korean.
Reassuring. I have a grand in a set of riding pants and jacket made there. Never really knew what to think of it but the quality was indistinguishable from equivalently priced stuff from anywhere else.
I dont mean to shill but the HF cans may as well be usgi except not rusty. I think the biggest issue with shitty metal ammo cans is cheap gaskets and HF aren't. The plastic ammo cans are for arts and crafts. Ammo goes in green sheet steel cans. That's scripture.
It's not even the latch pulling thing, plastic cans plain do not hold an airtight seal long term. I can fill a cheap hf .30 or .50 cal can, fill it with loose 9mm and a color changing dessicant, come back a year later and the shit will still be dry. I know because I've done it. Dessicant doesn't last a week in plastic cans half full of boxes.
