I am thinking about buying a couple of Mono Vaults in case I need to bury my guns and ammo. Hey with this president you just never know. To guard against moisture I was thinking about using my food saver to vacum pack my ammo. I have vacum packed some of my 5.56 bandoliers and they are airtight, but I am concerned that by vacum packing the ammo that it might damage my ammo in some way due to the pressures. Has anyone had any experience with vacum packing your ammo. Good idea or not.

IMO, Monovaults are way over priced.

I have put together the PVC built tubes in the past. Each cost about $13.00 to build. I buried one in 1999. I recently unearthed it to check it out. Everything was perfectly dry and in great condition. I had vacuum packed four ammo boxes. All four boxes were still sealed. I have not fired the ammo yet, but plan to. I don't see how a vacuum sealer could affect the ammo, not a household machine anyway.

+1 on the PVC. Just remember to bury it in your liberal neighbor's yard.

I heard it is a no go on vacuum sealing ammo. It compresses the powder.

Did you use any oxygen absorbers?

I just went in an vacum packed a salt shaker. It has no effect on the salt inside which would be the same for a bullet.

You've got that right. If they come to your home for your guns they have a device, other than metal detectors, that scans the ground for any disturbances in the soil. A lot of police departments use them or have access to them for looking for buried bodies. Find a spot off your property.

I've got just the right neighbor then. A libtard Md transplant that needs to go back to PG county.
