    I was going to buy a couple of these anyway after watching this review a guy made. I work close to the Dunwoody store.
    I’m going to use them for storage only. I have a bunch of the mtm ammo boxes to take to the range.

    Walmart used to carry these in store. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Plano-Sports-Outdoors-Gun-Storage-1312-Ammo-Can/23247620
    It seems they have replaced them with another brand but still USA made. My local store has been out lately but they normally have two sizes, one is short and wide for boxes of shot shells and the other is taller and skinnier. I think either size is $4.88.

    Here is the one they replaced the Plano with. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Stout-Stuff-Plastic-Field-Ammo-Box/274770200
    Looks like Tallahassee has some in stock.

    All the Harbor Freight Ammo boxes suck. None of them come with ammo.

    Deceptive advertising, huh?

    They were empty but are getting filled. Loaded 1k yesterday and another 500 this evening. Some are dull, some shiny, but all will work. 364BDB5A-A965-4DC2-B26A-107B9E369BE5.jpeg

    I picked up a flyer at the store. They were listed for this weekend. I believe it's a coupon.

    The HF Metal 50 cal cans work fine for my factory boxed ammo , as does the ones at Wal-mart (metal 50 cal's ) + they are nicer & cheaper than the surplus rusty cans at certain 'True-speck ' type locations .
