How do you all hide, store or bury your ammo stash? Does it matter? X_ring's on how much ammo you keep turned up a lot of ammo being kept. What do you do to safeguard your stash?

Speaking of safes, is one brand any better than the next?

Craftsman rolling tool cabinet.  Multiple drawers, lockable, easy to access.

Mine's full and so damn heavy I can barely move it.

I use .50 & .30 cal ammo cans, with a reuseable dessicant in each can.  I put these in a plastic soda case.  The type that used to hold 3 8-pks of the 1/2 liter bottles.  I think they hold the 2 liter bottles also.  One .50 cal can, and two .30's fit perfectly in the pop case.  2 50's and a 30 fit in with about a inch of 'finger space' (can get fingers all the way thru the handle).  These things hold about all the ammo one man can carry, for a short distance, with out throwing out his (my) back.  They are heavy duty, won't break apart, and are waterproof!   I store these in the back of the bus I have buried in the back yard!  And NO! it's not a short bus!!

Ammo in gun safe, under bed, under desk, on shelves, in drawers. I think I need to work on my organization a little.

OSLOW,

It looks like no matter where you are in your house, your close to some ammo. I store mind in the safe and closet. I bought one of those vacuum sealers from Tilia and started packing ammo with it.

Is there any need to be concerned about temperature when storing in the house?  Of course it's not freezing here in FL but with the heat, humidity, and A/C  - what do I need to be concerned about?  I thought I read somewhere that brass sweats when the temp changes too often ??????

That sounds like a good idea. I was thinking I should put some of this stuff in baggies or something.  One concern I have is what to do if the house were to catch fire. Just tell the firemen to get face down in the ditch I guess.

Speaking of ammo and house fires:  Has anyone ever built a sprinker/fire surpression system in their ammo storage area?  I bet the fire department would be very happy to hear that all the reloading supplies became inert as soon as the fire alarm went off.
