Seriously, I have it stacked 8 deep right now but I am a bit concerned about the stuff on the bottom, anyone know how much a steel case this comes in will hold on top of it? I'm figuring it's holding about 500-525 pounds on top of it.

only 1 or two deep, send me at least 4 of them for safe storage.

Well, my wife has a set of special racks also but I'm not about to drop a box of SA on top of them. I have to sleep sometime..........

I'd like to know the answer to this too.

I bet you could make em take more weight by throwing a sheet of plywood on top of each layer.

Are you thinking there may be a shortage of it soon? Because if there is a war to beat all wars,you will never get off more that about ten mags or so if you are good!

All one can hope for is to take out about 50(big thinking)bad guys with you!

Bottom line if we all can take out fifty to one,we might have a chance!!!

Or if in fact you are not buying it for shitican then you must just like haveing lots of 7.62X51 on hand!!!

All in all it' s good to have ammo!!!

Well, they stack very well as is, they have small nubs so they stand pretty secure atop the last one. I don't think I would try to stack 8 deep with plywood in between. The stack is about 6 feet tall.

I don't think I'd stack them 8 deep. How about standing them on the ends? That should save some room and make for a little more strength.

Note to self: Build ammo bunker.

That is all.

And just who's selling 1260 round cans of SA 7.62x51 these days?

Ammo: buy it cheap, stack it deep!

Oh wait, that's been 'copyrighted' already.

I have been considering this.I would like to build a small underground magazine to store ammo and smokeless powder.I have enough stuff in our little rancher that if it caught fire I would be worried about the safety of firemen that showed up.Any ideas?

AIM surplus was selling it for $147 per 980 rounds, [weight requirements] so I would add 2 battle packs back to the ammo cans as I bought it. I believe the weight requirement is around 70 lbs.

It's sitting on an18 inch thick floor of concrete against a 3 foot thick concrete wall. It certainly is not going anyplace.

I'd never use all of it if the SHTF, but if surplus prices spike or it dries up, I won't have to worry for a while, and the prices will never be as low on surplus as they are now and in the past.

And with 2 M1As, 1 .308 Garand, and 2 FALs It'll get shot up.

I figured that's what you did. I remember a few years ago you could buy 1260 round cans for $135 or so. I guess those days are gone.

Keep stackin'. But call the FAA and see when you need to add lights to the top layer.

Ask Taxman, I understand that he has dealt with these issues in the past.
