    I don’t have a use for this particular box, but I’m giving up on all my ol’ metal .50 cal. and .30 cal. ammo cans. Gradually replacing them with plastic like MTM, Plano, etc. They don’t rattle as much, they seal better, they stack better, they open and close easier, the handles are more comfortable and they don’t rust.

    They even come in colors, if you’re into that sort of thing or you want to color code your ammo stash.

      The old surplus ammo cans are that we used to buy off pallets at gun shows for a couple of bucks each are gone. You can buy new ones but the prices are way too high for this old man. So I’ve gone to the good quality plastic boxes too. Our local Atwoods farm supply does a sale a couple times a year on the Plano .30 cal size for $4.00 each and I come home with a dozen every time.

      I picked up one of the MTM boxes for 5.56 mags a while back. It works well but I think that a guy could do the same with one of the larger Plano or MTM boxes, a piece of high density packing foam like you find around electronic components, and a box knife. I’m thinking about doing some old school wooden ammo boxes from one by pine and cutting foam inserts for them. Do some nice stenciling, add a couple of rope handles and then throw in a pack of kitty litter dessicant for long term storage. It might not be cheaper than the plastic boxes but it would be much higher on the cool scale.

        The cans seen in stores are Chicom crap. Govliquidation.com sells the real thing (DOD surplus) by the paller.

        1. avatar Stereodude says:

          You buy enough ammo to need .50 cal cans by the pallet?

      2. avatar No one of consequence says:

        A couple of companies sell foam inserts for .50 cal cans (metal, not the plastic Plano ones … the dimensions are a little different). For instance, Case Club: http://www.caseclub.com/ammo-can-foam.htm

          *Just* what I have been looking for.

          Thanks!

    2. avatar Curtis in IL says:

      I have a few of the Plano ones, roughly the size of a .30 Cal. box. They aren’t stout enough to inspire any confidence in me when they’re full of ammo. The lids will flex when you pick them up.

      I still prefer the steel ones.

      1. avatar Scoutino says:

        I like metal 50 cal. boxes best. Plastic ones, even the smaller kind flex too much. Once, when I filled one with loose 9 mm and lifted it the handle broke off. When the box hit the floor its lid broke off and thousand little cartridges got catapulted all over the room.

    3. avatar MiserableBastard says:

      My experience is the opposite, I only bought plastic Plano 30mm cans. I noticed that when storing loose ammo 9mm or .223 and the can is nearly full, lifting it by the handle separates the top from the bottom. No seal, just an air gap, I am going with metal from now on.

      Oh I have this MTM in the ar 30 round version as well as the AK 30 round version. but as Strych9 stated I also stack mags in ammo safe and dump in range bag when needed. Magazines are consumable items.

  2. avatar Blake says:

    I recently reorganized my gun safe and switched over to these things in the 5.56 version. At $20 a piece they’re a bit pricey, but they’re worth it for the neat look and a nicer way to transport mags to the range (no more Walmart bags lol).

    I still prefer .50 cal milsurp cans for loose rounds though

  3. avatar strych9 says:

    Weird to me. I stack my mags in my safe and when I need them I dump them in a range bag or backpack.

    They get a bit roughed up but they’re mags FFS. I don’t worry about scuffs on my cordless tool batteries either.

  4. avatar Darkman says:

    These are specifically designed for the firearms person who thinks they need the latest bling on the market. Made my own years ago with cheap Plano tackle boxes and foam from an old chair cushion. Got less than 10 bucks in each one. These at 20 bucks are way to expensive. Use my chest rig at the range and reload on site. Lets the guns cool down and allows time to shoot the shit with the guys and gals their.

  5. avatar Shotgun Sam says:

    Is “rang” a new term? No, seriously.

  6. avatar Don from CT says:

    Call me old fashioned, but I can’t figure out how this is any better than just piling the mags into a plain old box.

    I’m guessing this is for the crowd who worries whether or not the anodizing on their lower matches the anodizing on their upper.

  7. avatar M1Lou says:

    I use the larger Ammo crates for a lot of storage. They work perfect for power tools in the garage, AK, CETME, HK and whatever kits to keep them stacked until I am ready to build them. They also stack nicely under my work bench. I of course use these and a smaller version for ammo.

  8. avatar No one of consequence says:

    I can see a use (if not a need, strictly speaking) for this, if you have multiple rifles that take “big” magazines, but don’t all take the same magazines (e.g. if you have an AR-10 in .307 and a Vepr in 7.62x54R. You might not have enough magazines to fill one of these crates for each rifle, but 3 – 4 magazines for each of 3 – 4 rifles, and all of them together can fill the crate neatly. Keep them organized and easy to find, and perhaps less likely to grab the wrong one before heading to the range.

    Question is, does it really beat a .30- or .50-cal can for each rifle’s magazines?

    1. avatar No one of consequence says:

      ‘Course … ARs in .308 are much more common.. (and where’d the darned “edit” button go?!)

  9. avatar Hank says:

    Well if your not a bitch your main rifle is .308 or bigger anyway.

    1. avatar Stereodude says:

      I’m pretty sure that depends on what you’re using that “main rifle” for. And, along those lines how you’re defining “main rifle”. Are we talking about an AR for self defense / shooting paper at the range or are we talking about a wood stock hunting rifle for taking down large’ish game?

  10. avatar Klaus Von Schmitto says:

    I still like the steel cans. I blast them, paint the outside and spray on rubber bedliner on the insides.

    How the frak do you navigate to last or next page, I even turned off the add blocker but still no love. You really need to invest in someone who knows what the hell they are doing.
