I keep mine in ammo cans. If it came in boxes, I just pack the boxes in the can, if it's in bulk, it goes into the can loose. I put a bunch of dessicant packs in each can as well. I keep it in the house so that it stays in a fairly dry atmosphere at a relatively constant temperature.

Yes.
Plastic MTM boxes, zip lock bags, canvas bandoleers (what else would you put 8 round en bock clips in?), magazines..... Part going into GI ammo cans, part not. Oh, yea, 5 round stripper clips and those 10 round M16 strippers too.
I haven't bough commercial ammunition in 30 years, so I don't have many 'Boxes' of ammunition. I did pick up several white box with plastic holders for .38 wad cutters, flip them over and they hold .45ACPs quite well, 50 to the box.

Probably should be in the SHTF threads, but...



I use one of those "safety" can openers, load my ammo (in a ziploc bag with a silica packet and load data) in the empty and cleaned can, and use a toothpick to put just a dab of epoxy around the lid...



...then I hide the can.


tinfoil hat ftw !!

We have a decent sized roll box that we can push off the porch into the truck if need be.

We vacuum seal our ammo with a dessicant pack in them.

Don't fret, we do keep 3 mags or clips ready for each gun on the rack.

I just leave it in the boxes it comes in and put in my safe. Is that bad?

In a bucket filled with oil. Helps clean the gun as Im shooting it.

Seriously though, next to our safe I have a cedar chest that is pretty much air tight. Anything I load goes into labeled boxes and then into the chest.

I use marine grade plastic ''ammo" boxes that I find at Bass Pro. On sale they are $5.00. They are bright orange, which really does not bother too much. They hold around 800-1000 rounds (handgun) per box depending on caliber. I do store them rounds loose, but through in a descant pack or two for good measure. Speaking of descant packs, I get a ton of them at work this time of year and would be happy to send any extras to anyone that need them. PM for details.

I just store most of mine in Military ammo cans and the rest either in mags or a box in my 5.11 range bag (the big one).
