How many loaded 30rd mags will fit in a .50cal ammo can? I want them standing on the floorplates.

All my cans right now are loaded with boxed and bandoliered ammo. I'm too damn lazy to dump it all out and try my mags in them. I'm about to order some mags and I need an exact amount to go by.

i get 30, 20 rounders in a .50 cal can.., just off hand i'd say 24 at most..., BUT !! be carefull !! the feed lips protrude above the rim of the can & may get bent, especially those that rest on the "hump" on the bottom when closing & locking lid !!

Hmmmm..... if the feed lips are at risk I may have to rethink my gameplan. Thanks!!!

I was just trying this the other day. The mags protrude waaaaaay over the top of the can. Maybe try one of the larger .50 cal cans. The standard size ones definitely don't accomodate 30 round AR mags.

Dimensions:

1) 50 CAL AMMO CAN

11.5"x7"x6"



2) G.I. SAW BOX

12" X 6 3/4" X 8 1/2"



I don't have any of the G.I. SAW cans but it's an idea.

I have one of the SAW cans and like it.

I have 13 30's and 10 20's in it, but I also have a cammenga easyloader, USGI cleaning kit, punches, couple replacement trigger kits, 2 or 3 CAR buffers, M4 stock wrench, mag coupler, USGI oil bottle, zip-lock baggie with 30rd followers, baggie of 20rd followers (plastic and alloy), BSA reddot, VFG, bolt-on rail for VFG, 4 sets of ear plugs, and a couple more little things I can't remember.

You should be able to get plenty of mags in there if you only put mags in it.

I can get a pic if you want.

I don't think I have ever seen a SAW ammo can. A pic would be appreciated.

A saw can will neatly hold 24 30rnd mags standing on end in 4 pocket bandoleers.

Well, how's about 3 pics.

SAW in back .50 cal up front. SAW is taller and wider, but roughly the same length.


Got everything packed in there pretty tight. It holds 7 mags wide and will hold 3 layers high if you lay them over (the 2 30rders you see are stacked on top of 2 other levels of 30rders).


Here's everything that I have in there. This comes with me every time I shoot the AR's now.
