[Princess Auto] Ammo Can (Poly) $5.88 Each!

Was looking for more ammo cans to store "stuff" ;) and ran into these ones for $5.88 each. They are new manufacture and seal very well. Can be used for all sorts of storage where moisture may be an issue. Would not reccomend for food tho. I use them in the garage to store tools and the like too as they are a handy size and I have mild OCD sometimes. Heh.

If you have bought surplus cans in the past like me, then these are MUCH better and MUCH cheaper; plus they are new and therefore aren't rusted or have questionable seals. They don't have the military markings on them so you do lose a few man points with your friends.

Plastic garbage imo.
Most are but these aren't. The are quite thick and stout. There is no flex.

Wonder if I'd find these in stock locally or if it's mainly an online thing.

I ordered 5 shipped to my place. For 8$ shipping it's not worth my time and gas to go buy them in store. Good deal OP, thanks.

There were a couple left in store today at the Langford location. They seemed to be good quality. Definitely not as stout as a Pelican case but great value for the money.

I was impressed with the quality on this for $5. Not using it for ammo, it'll make a nice waterproof boat case. decent for a cheap smaller toolbox too

Military will not use plastic ammo can. Just not durable enough.

If weighted down and dropped will definitely crack.

I bought one for storing a full roll of Bounty towels for the BBQ. Fits perfectly.

Yep.

Need metal ones for military. Way harder on this stuff.

Incorrect. You are aware that 5.56mm machine gun belts and 25mm rounds - to name just a few - come in "plastic" (as you call it) boxes in the military ?

Bought the .30 cal ones for $4.99 in store last month, very durable, we use them to load my boys NERF bullets into... he thinks it's pretty cool when he has an ammo box of bullets when he's in a battle with friends. Will have to see if our local store still has these.

I bought one of these to store my boat flares in - it is reasonably sturdy, but it is nowhere near airtight, and certainly isn't water-resistant to any standard...
