How do you store you different types and sizes of ammo? Are they categorized? are they all thrown in a box? What do you store it in and where? I'm curious and would love to see some pics.

All my piles of ammo are in a cardboard box and I need a new system.

Sorry, no pics, but my ammo gets stored in ammo cans with a different can for each caliber. That reminds me, need two more cans. :image035:

I got a wood crate from a CT scanner's heat exchanger.

I stack ammo boxes in there and it is more then enough for as little ammo as I have.

What ammo would you be referring to?
I'm sorry...... I have no weapons, no ammo, and if I did, I'm sure they were lost in a tragic flood that may or may not have occurred in the past, or in a flood that may occur in the future.....or tornado......possibly even fire........

Factory ammo is stored in the original boxes

Pistol/revolver handloads are either in MTM-style cases or bulk in 5x5x5 inch cardboard containers

Rifle handloads are in MTM cases with the exception of .308 and .223. The .308 is in M1 Garand clips or bulk boxes and the .223 is in 10-round stripper clips.

With the exception of some SD ammo kept with its respective pistol(s), all my ammo is in a dedicated ammo cabinet adjacent to the gun vault.

My ammo stash looks like the warehouse that Indiana Jones stored the Ark of the Covenant in.
I saw that movie...:yup:
Which box was yours?:rofl:

To the OP...
Mine is all stored in two safes...with guns, of course.

Bottom shelf of the safe (I know your not suppose to store ammo with firearms)

Surplus ammo cans, by caliber. Some calibers have multiple cans. Just stacked in a closet in my office / gun room.

I don't have any ammo, but if I did I would probably store it in some metal lock-boxes that I also don't currently have. I am interested in seeing (only on the web as I have no use for them) some of the ammo cans that others in this thread don't own because they have any ammo either.

If anybody would like to post a link to some of these hypothetical ammo cans where some nut-job gun owner (of which I don't personally know any) might purchase them at a good price, I would appreciate it. This will help me to protest them as I am a peaceful citizen that wants nothing more than to be a good citizen serving my government.

No pictures but I use GI ammo cans for each caliber. I use plastic flip top ammo boxes for added protection. You can get the boxes pretty cheap from Midway in bulks of ten and you get the sitckey labels for labeling.

I use the ammo/dry box things from MTM and also Military Ammo cans. I keep my .22 , 7.62X39, .39 and .45 ACP in different cans though.

Labled one gallon ziplock backs inside military ammo cans. Different can for each caliber. I don't keep in factory box due room. If it is factory ammo I tear off the portion of the box that has lot number and put that in the ziplock bag.
