Hope this is OK to post here!
Looking for American made ammo in 223, 45acp as well as 9mm ammo!
In sardine can or blister packs! For long term storage!!!
I have seen "Wolf"! But will pass on that.
I would take a serious look at ammo made in Israel as well!
So is anyone selling what I'm looking for???

If you mean the sealed spam cans, then I'm fairly certain that only only the Russians sell those.

If your guns run steel ok, I wouldn't worry too much about storing some cans in whatever caliber. But if you want brass, you could just seal them in an ammo can. Not quite the same, but close.

Buy or borrow a food saver and make your own "battle packs"

Cabella's has 5.56 in battle packs. Kind of pricey.

This, and be sure to test the particular ammo for function in whatever firearm you wish to shoot through before investing in a substantial quantity.

Also, OP's post needs more "!".

I like the idea of sealed battle packs. But im not convinced yet that the price is worth the packaging.

Why not?





To answer your question, if you can't find what you're looking for, consider buying bulk loose round packs of your preferred ammo and storing them in these with some desiccant.

I packed some ammo up in vacuum seal bags. Works fine but watch the points, sometimes they can pierce the bag

How I fixed the tip problem was I arranged the ammo next to each other alternating tip to tail in packs of 30 for 223 and packs of 20 for 308. Pistol I just put fifty in the bag and sealed away. No holes seem to be present. This was for reloads btw. For factory I just kept it in factory boxes and sealed those up.

Buy whatever ammo you want and break them up loose. Toss them into an ammo can with some silica gel packs and a fairly climate controlled environment and you will be fine. As long as they are not exposed to extreme temperature swings or climates, you should be fine. I've read stories of WWII ammo that has no exactly been stored properly still firing fine.

I bought a can sealer for just this purpose.

I have shot thousands of rounds of Wolf and never had an issue. It is my cheap "Rainy day" ammo that I store away.

IMI is some great stuff, but also $100 more per thousand.

To expand upon this, a #2 can will hold with a 5g silica gel pack:
500 rds 22lr
or
150 rds 9mm
or
120 rds 5.56
or
100 rds 45 ACP

Got some magtech m193 that came in ammo cans and is in plastic bags already.

To some extent you might find some surplus 9mm in bags or something, generally in boxes and then in bags.

Ammo cans, oxygen absorbers, and leave it alone.
