You don't want to put all your eggs in one basket. If you have a safe or steel locker that would work. I found a local LGS that had ammo cans for $7 ea. You don't want dirtbags to know all your hiding places! At $1/rd, it's like pots of gold in convent storage box. After you have been broken in to, you don't want to tell too much info.
Remember the battle of Athens, TN!

For now I have them in ammo cans in my bedroom closet. But im going to get a job box and lock up my ammo inside of the cans in side of the job box. They weigh almost 200lbs empty and add a few thousand rounds and that thing will weight a hefty ammount.

Ammo should be kept cool and dry.
I store mine in sealed ammo cans with dessicant packs in the can, on the floor of my basement workshop.
Every 3 months, I open the cans and dry the dessicant.
(Two hours at 200 degrees in the electric oven.)
History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.
If you think a strong military is expensive, think about what a weak one would cost
I keep my handgun ammo in a small cabinet above the gun safe. I keep shotgun ammo in a military ammo box. in the "gun room" I keep my .357 in a concealed safe in the master bedroom suite, and a box of ammo with it. I have a single shot shotgun on the wall in the library, and a box of shells hidden behind some books.
