I was looking at more ammo cans this morning and found a used military combo pack of 1-30 cal and 1-50 cal for $20. Does anyone know of a better deal anywhere?
If possible, put desiccant in the ammo cans. I have U.S.Military 50 Cal ammo cans that I store primers in and the 40mm grenade ammo cans for gunpowder with desiccant in both types and some of the gunpowder and primers are fifteen years old and in perfectly preserved condition. I do check on the condition of the desiccant which the glass silica type. If they are transparent, their good, but if they are translucent or opaque, into an oven set on low laid out on a cookie sheet for twenty to thirty minutes or so until the little beads are transparent again. There is a silica desiccant that look like clay and grayish green in color, but I don’t like them because they do not indicate if the are activated or not. You can get desiccant from Grainger or McMaster-Carr.Got it PRR. I do have a few knock off cans, just careful what I put in them and where they are stored.
