Q. Where can I buy ammo cans?

There are dozens of sources for USGI ammo cans online and via mail order, but the best place to get them is usually at gun shows, because their size and weight make them expensive to ship.

Opinion: Cheaper Than Dirt usually has 30- and 50-caliber cans available and is generally good to do business with.
