I sell them to "Honey" bees they use them for combs. What do you do with plastic ammo containers?

But if anyone can think up a use for the plastic primer trays, I'd be delighted! I thought about using them for wall decorations, but they're tedious to glue up, one at a time.
Just use a nail...

When reloading I like to keep my shells segregated by brand.

So I re-use all my ammo holders.

I don't reload, so usually trash.
I don't save stuff just to save it. I must have a use for it.

JJ, unfortunately I don't shoot as much as I used to. I moved into town a while back.
I used to shoot almost every other weekend at the house in the country. We'd usually go through about 2-300 rounds a session. Mostly handgun.
Right after I bought my gun safe and had it delivered, I went to the lgs where I bought it and the manager smiled and said "I hear you have a brass yard!"
It took me a second to think about it, then I just laughed.
From then on, I got great deals from that man.

I save some for use when we shoot outside instead of our indoor range. I'll sep. Different ammo, because I may bring 20-25 rds. Of one type and 50-100 of another....
I also save the 22LR 100 round plastic trays, and pack them with Ammo from larger Bricks...also from Range trips/Outdoor shooting. We were going to go today but we are still both sore, her from a procedure in the Docs office Monday and me from the Dog pulling me down in the driveway he was so excited to be going out and thought we were going for a ride,...When it was just a walk...so he is sitting here trying to make me feel better....

I create a job with my plastic trays. I shoot them into little pieces, then pay someone to clean it up.
