I've been looking for a compartmentalized ammo can but don't seem to come up with anything. Has anyone heard of one and/or know where I can find one?

I have a standard plastic can I'm using now. It holds over 1000 rnds, but because of a lack of compartments I have to leave my ammo in the boxes which defeats the purpose for me. I want to be able to split it into three or four sections so I can unbox the different caliber rounds for easy access without them mixing.

There are containers I've found that achieve this, however, they aren't "ammo cans" thus they provide no water resistance or sealable/lockable lid.

Any useful suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

this may do the trick...maybe not the best solution but at least the ammo will stay separated.

Military surplus ammo cans are cheap, strong, weather resistant and they are stackable. Buy one for each caliber you want to store. The government does get some things right.

Yeah found those a while ago, they aren't suited for my purpose. Think I'll just cut some cardboard slats to separate as needed. Thanks anyway guys.

Too much to lug around. I want a single box. Thanks though.

you could always build dividers out of ABS plastic, if you have a dremel or router you could notch each one and slide them together without gluing or just silicone them in place , light weight , removable and cheap
