    Ammo in spam can

    Hi All
    Here lately I have been buying surplus ammo in spam cans which I don't need right away just building inventory , My question is do you guys leave it in can for storage long term or do you take it out inspect it and store it in ammo cans ?

    As long as it's stored in the can, it should be air tight. I've never had any damaged ammo come out of a spam can, even ammo that was made in the '50s. My thought is that removing the ammo from the can leaves more of a chance of moisture damaging it. Probably best to just leave it sealed...

    Store ammo in an environment that is climate controlled...inside the house. You'll be just fine many years from now, and I wouldn't give it a second thought.

    I purposely buy the Wolf 7.62x39mm JHP ammo in the 640 round spam-cans simply because they pack it that way for extremely long storage. I understand the cans are sealed containing 0% humidity dry nitrogen so there will be absolutely no degradation from moisture or oxidation for eons. I only transfer the individual boxes to a military ammo can after I've opened a spam can with the neat little can opener they send along with it.
