I bought a bunch of cans from them last month and was very pleased with the condition of the cans. The shipping charge was very reasonable to me. I can never find cans locally anyway.

I didn't pay that much. I ordered five SAW cans and three .50 cans and the shipping was $19.24. It was one big and heavy box that poor UPS guy had to deliver. I think the shipping was quite reasonable.

Just bought 10 Cans for 63.00 delivered!   Good shipping deal on larger quantities.  

6.30 each to the door

I have probably 25 ammo cans in my garage that are brand new....yes, sitting empty.  I just don't want to deal with shipping them...what a PITA!

Wow.  Those appear to be in really good condition.  I think every single can I bought either locally or through Widener's (Grade A) had at least a little rust.  Yours look new.
Link Posted: 7/25/2007 8:54:27 AM EDT
I got my cans yesterday via UPS.  They were in awesome condition and not a spot of rust.  Seals look to be perfect.  Thanks again DepletedUranium!!!

Yw, just do me a favor and spread the word to everybody, i wish i got some sort of commission out of all this, but i guess the satisfaction of knowing you guys paid much less then you would've anywhere else is enough for me

Received 10 today and they look good.  I'll be ordering more.  I'm surprised I received them at all the way they were packaged.  2 corners were ripped half way and 1 corner liked a couple of inches be completely ripped open.
Link Posted: 7/26/2007 10:18:38 PM EDT
Just ordered 5. This is the where the cost of shipping changes slope to be a negligible discount per additional can. The very best number to order is definitely 11 cans according to my calcs. If not 11, 5 is also a good cutoff point.
Link Posted: 7/27/2007 9:35:05 AM EDT
Got mine today.  Excellent condition.  Thanks for the heads up DU!!!!!

Very nice cans.  

4 shipped for $28.82

Ordered Sunday, 7/22/07, delivered today, 7/27/07





Link Posted: 7/28/2007 9:16:07 AM EDT
The best thing next to the condition is their selection.  A couple months ago, I picked up 4 tall 50 cal cans, which easily hold a case of 1000, so I don't have to split it between 2 regular 50 cal cans. I also picked up 4 fat 50 cal (saw cans), which hold 30 each 30 round magazines standing on end with a couple more laid on top.  I was very pleased with the almost pristine condition of all eight cans.

Just ordered myself 11 of these bad boys for $6.33 shipped each.  Can never find these things locally and when I do they are like 12-15 bucks!

Will finally be able to sort out all my mags and ammo the way I want to.

Good find!
Link Posted: 8/2/2007 1:09:43 PM EDT
Just got my cans. They are in the best condition I've seen, like new. Just load em up and store away.

Mine have large white paper labels on both sides saying 50 cal AP instead of the cool yellow paint stencil. Had I been certain they would be this nice, I would have gotten a few more.

Got mine today (8) and they have the same big white sticker on the side.  They are in great shape, but would have preferred the yellow paint myself too.  I am guessing they just had the ammo pulled and the cans were sent off for sale.
Link Posted: 8/2/2007 3:40:11 PM EDT
The sticker peels off easy.  These aren't as nice as the first 10 .50 cal cans I got.  They look like they were made by a different manufacturer.  I only got 2 this time along with 4 .50 cal -10" tall and 4 S.A.W. Box.  These looked better.

Link Posted: 8/2/2007 5:07:52 PM EDT
Yep, just got my 11 today... same white sticker.  No cool yellow stencil, but no big deal.

All of these cans are in great shape.  No rust anywhere.

Very happy with my purchase.  Will have plenty of storage for a while.
Link Posted: 8/2/2007 5:32:48 PM EDT
Eh, figured that I'd better hop in before it was too late.  Ordered 8 50's, 2 fat 50's, and 2 .30cals.  Came out $6.50 each shipped.  Not bad at all!  

Hopefully they'll look as good as DU's.    Thanks for the link bro!

Thanks for the info DU.

Ordered 10 .30 cal cans. They showed up today and were in mint condition! So I, ordered 5 fat 50's.

They are definitely the place to get your ammo cans from if condition matters

For some reason they felt flimsy to me compared to some other cans I have.  Anyone else notice it ????
