    I was in a store called Murdocks the other day. They had a bunch of 30 and 50 cal cans. They also had cans that were the size of an ice chest. I believe Murdocks is a chain. I don't know if they are in your area or not.

    I don't have much trouble finding ammo. Locally, yes, but not on the net. It may not be my favorite brand, & it is more expensive than it used to be. [ supply & demand ]
    The link to " ammo to go " has everything you mentioned but 7.62.x 54. Here is a place that has it & a better price on ammo cans. Look around & you can probably beat their price, too.

    Thank the Government for this also: Government Surplus Auctions at Government Liquidation Last year me and a couple of buddies bought 600 - 50 cal ammo cans for less than $2000.00. We each kept 100 and sold the rest. The point I'm making is that this is the website that almost ALL surplus goes through now. It's set up like an ebay auction, and you can buy anything from canteen cups to ocean-going ships. The only catch on ammo related things, is you have to get what they call an EUC.....that stands for End Use's free, but takes a couple weeks to get. Basicly, you have to sign a paper saying you are a U.S. citizen, and you won't sell your stuff to the bad guys (they have a list of who they don't want you to sell to). They sell brass by lots weighing from a thousand pounds to lots weighing several tons. There are locations all over the country so you can look at stuff near you or go as far as you want.
