When I order remanufactured ammo by the case, they send it with a Plano box. It works and it's free.

I also use .50cal ammo cans. I use new ones tho not surplus. Nothing against the surplus just I have had a couple issues in the past with the seals again nothing majorish, but I can get new ones for the price of used ones in my area so its just a given that im going to get the new ones.

New 50 cal cans.. Ammo to go has them and often I add one or two to my regular orders. If you play it right you can beat the shipping on them too. Ron

Cabelas has a descent 1. Plastic. I use it and it holds a lot of weight and has not failed yet. And they don't cost an arm and a leg.

I use .50 cal MTM boxes to store loaded/factory ammo, the .30 cal box holds 1000 .45 200gr boolits perfectly.

I use Pelican cases, mine are older styles that I have picked up used over the years, most are retired "sales demo" cases.

They are easy to carry, sealed and store anywhere without drawing too much attention.

I have used the plastic ones from cabalas, MGM, and Plano. They work great. My favorite are the 50 Cal metal ones they hold together great. I remember buying really nice surplus ones for 5 bucks when I was 13, now used price is too close to new.

Checkout Stronghold.com

I keep the balance of my ammunition stored in their excellent 12 guage cabinets.

or if you want something really cool and custom, here is something my dad made for a coworker. My co worker picked the photos and my dad put them on the leather.

I'm sure it's been answered on here before but is it ok to store ammo like this in .50 cal surplus boxes?

Some will say not to but it's fine to store them that way. I prefer it that way as long as you don't get them mixed up.

Is it bad NOT to store ammo in a sealed can? Mine is just stacked on a shelf in the cardboard/box it came in?
