I suppose that is a good price, nowadays.
The question is "Are they as air-tight as the surplus metal ones?"
If they are then under certain conditions they must be a bear to open. That probably is why the metal ones have a small handle on the front.

The one posted above is plastic...and would be subject to weight restrictions ( full of ammo and stacked one on another )

The GI cans ( both 30 cal and 50 cal ) do hold more and stack higher.

Dick's Sporting Goods is where I buy all my cans now....Winchester and Plano Plastic Cans are $9.99 each ( like the Bear Arms above )...

Metal GI 50 Cal cans are $19.99 each...and they do keep them in stock.

I've bought no less than 7 plastic and 6 metal this month alone...the savings come back to me in the form of Score Card rewards.

Ammo can

I have several of the plastic .50 cal. cans.
and several metal .50 cal. cans.
I may be old and senile,
but even I know you can not load a
Plastic can
as
you would load a metal can.

The plastic cans are easier to find
than a like new metal can, for me anyway.

Oh well,

I have several of the .30 cal (plastic above) and very full, they are strong and I stack them 3 high, no problem.

They seem to have good seals, I look at even indents on the seals, and easy open unlike the metal ones.

Now, I don't know how strong the .50 cal plastic cans would be.

I use the .30 cal for .22s,38s, 9mms, (handgun ammo)and .223,

I can buy b2 of these cheaper than 1 .50 cal.;)

I like them a lot.

The last time I bought Blazer Brass in .40, I got 250rds. with a free plastic case. A Gander deal.......................I usually don't buy my ammo from Gander, but it was a pretty good deal.
