Thinking about dumping some .30 cal cans. Will they sell or are people stuck on .50's?

I prefer 50's for most uses, but 30's work for a lot of things as well.

I was just looking over my ammo fort last weekend and thinking I could use more 30cal cans, as the 50s are nice but too heavy for my more 'mobile' ammo-fort walls.

I have a feeling you're not too close to me though... otherwise you'd have at least one customer.

I prefer the 50's, but I don't think you'll have any problems getting rid of the 30's locally...

If you are a weak guy like myself then you should highly reconsider those .30 cans.  Much easier to move around with.

I like the 30's as well as I can stash them easier in car, truck, or out of the way at friends and families. But I've got more than I'll ever be able to afford to fill. I'm in Louisa County about five miles off 64 exit 138 or 136 can't remember.

50s for storing, 30s for carrying.

30s work great for loading up with caste bullets.   You can also get 6k 55gn 22 FMJ in one!

That is easy.    You should try a SAW can full of 7.62x39 Golden tiger or even better the same SAW can full of 22lr bulk packs.   Now that is fun.   I also use 50 cal cans to store 1lb Lyman lead ingots after I make a wheel weight melting run.   I have not gotten up the gumption to try a SAW can full of those yet.

Off 64 about 15 miles from Charlottesville on the Richmond side. I've got about 60 left in good shape.

30s hold 2.5 bricks of CCI .22s perfectly. Tow 500rd sleves side by side and enough fill in room for another half brick or so.
