Only one way to know for sure.............One......Two....Three....


Count out 20 or so and weigh them, then weight the whole bucket, minus weight of bucket, do math. Had I seen the bucket wasn't "full", I'd have guessed 1k less.

It's amazing what you can find laying on the ground at the range.

Looks like One (1) Shitload of ammo to me.

Damn, what does it weigh?
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 2:36:32 PM EDT
There's an easy way to find out.

Weigh a similar bucket.

Weigh 10 rounds (individually, not together) and average the weight.

Weigh the full bucket, subtract the tare, and divide by the average per-round weight, and propagate your error.

Weigh about 100 rounds and then divide. I bet it will give you a close answer.

(from the classic radio show Fibber McGee and Molly)

*Fibber is trying to figure out how man beans fit into a fishbowl to win a contest*
Fibber: "I thought I would never get it done, but then I came up with a plan. I took this teacup and counted how many beans fit into it, which is 230."
Molly: "Genius!"
Fibber: "Yeah. I take the teacup, dump it into the fishbowl, add up the total beans which is now . . . 347 . . ."
Molly: "Amazing!"
Fibber: "And then I just refill the teacup like this: one, two, three . . ."

i am going to say 8250, based on what i feel a bag of 500 .40 looks like, that bucket looks to hold about 16 bags of 500 so there is my estimate

Remember to find out the weight of the container and subtract it from the total weight, otherwise you're throwing off your measurement considerably.

Help me out here, even if I completely discount the weight of the bucket (which weighs less than a box of 50) how would that throw it off considerably?

I know for sure that 1900 rds of 357 SIG fills a 50 cal ammo can.
357 SIG ammo is basically the same size as .40 S&W, so I would guess that there is about 2.5 50 cal cans worth of ammo there. So my guess is 4750 rounds +/-.
