Sounds like a plan - thanks. A lot of my 7.62X54R is in 440rd tins. One has a hole in it (chinese) and somebody that had it before me used solder to seal it. I opened that one first and am firing it up first. I bought some BOXER non corrosive 7,62X54R U think I wil food seal that up first, put silica packet in the food sealer and then put that into a good gasket 30 cal ammo box-for LONG term storage.
