    Army suprlus ammo cans

    Does anyone know of a good reliable source for ex-army ammo cans

    I used to buy them from a scrap merchant in Wanganui who had them by the pallet load, is he still around?

    I miss the Army Surplus Store that most towns used to have...remember piles of beat-up ammo cans for $5 each. Shooters Supplies had a bunch last winter for $20 but many were badly dinged, had to search for a tidy one.
    Here's their current deal, sorry not local to you K_K
