    Anyone using this to store ammo?

    Anyone using these containers to store ammo? Ended up buying ammo in bulk that I won't be using for a while so looking at some safe storage solution, ie that won't get moisture in them.

    Res...lol......you should recieve some type of award....awesome!!

    Price of those cases are a ripoff,period.I use them for shotgun shells,223 ammo,as I buy in bulk.Nevertheless,great ammo boxes,then again they were designed as such.Just an idea,several cigar outfits use these ammo boxes to store and send bulk cigars,they are lined with a fabric(will find out what it is)that is designed to absorb and keep moisture out,do some research,but as you say,a great way to store ammo.

    I take it that you think that ammo is going to be in short supply sometime? my missus thinks 3 boxes is good enough shared between all my firearms.

    funnily enough I have found having multiple ammo boxes works real good in that she forgets what is where and how much in each and always try and buy some most visits to gun shop.the grandkids are a good excuse to have to buy more ammo and looking at rifles that they can learn to shoot with.

    you take it wrong, its more about that its cheeper per round to buy or reload in bulk once you find a load each gun likes- a also have a lot of old guns so a lot a calibers. also when buying dirt cheep surplus you have to buy it when its available

    So I take it that the misses wears the pants in the whanau,and lets you use your guns when she sees fit?....I see,.....(just pulling your leg mate)
    Im with res,have half dozen different calibres,buy bulk,it's cheaper and 1000 round packages last a long time.Very seldom do I see prices drop on ammo,right now most ammo is affordable,like the stock market,it has its days.

    Had an interesting reaction from my wife when she heard that my projectile order for the next 4 years could total USD 15K ordered in small quantities to avoid customs charges.

    Just as well she doesn't know what each rifle is worth.
    I didn't tell her when the itemised list of rifles, reloading dies, projectiles, powders etc passed $30K. Best only the insurance knows.
