  1. I think MTM ammo cans were recommended previous on here. I bought a bunch and am happy with them. Got the 4 can crates and also their magazine cases. Labeled the top of each. All ammo is very organized now.

  2. For ammo storage , have some of the single MTM boxes a few years old, but they still do like new,they hold heavy loads, can hold a lot of loose ammo without the bottom giving way, at first I was concerned about the plastic not being strong enough but they have done great, I stack these next to my old military steel ammo cans,I am pleased with both. Be prepared and ready. Keep your powder dry.
