No problem storing ammo loose. If you want to do that then go for it. The military does it more or less too. But they tend to use stripper clips on the rifle ammo.

This ammo was dumped loose out of necessity in 81...I didnít have enough cans for the boxes....after reading this thread a few days ago, I popped it open and fired a few of the various rounds...no failure to fire at all...

Shotgun shell, same story...shot fine..the -06 in the en bloc clips is surplus from WW II and/or Korea...they were mixed with the remaining shotgun shell...ball ammo is plain, Orange is tracer and black is AP..would never fire the black or orange in a firearm I cared about....but there is always that ďjust in caseĒ...
Crappy writing has not improved in 40 years...these shot ok too...

I don’t consider myself OCD, but loose bulk Ammo in a can just isn’t right. I have to have it neatly boxed & organized.

These folks get a lot of business from me when I make bulk loose orders.

I keep all my ammo in 50 cal cans, but not loose. It stays in the cardboard box that it comes in. for one thing, I have several different brands of ammo and don't want to mix them all together and be shooting a hodge podge of different ammo. But the main thing is in case of a rare, but possible recall. that way I can identify the lot number.

I may be a bit OCD, but I vacuum seal and date each box of ammo before it goes into the can.
This is 9mm, but you get the idea.

I use to use the 50 cans but have switched over to 30s. I put 500 rounds of 45 in each. It is a reasonable weight to tote around to the range etc. I just use the 50s for shotgun now.

Dang, that's expensive... you can just by Berry's or MTM boxes for the same or cheaper and reuse them forever.
