25 lbs of rice fills a 5 gal bucket about 2/3 full.

or alternatively 25l bs of sugar, rice, etc fills a 3.5 gallon bucket very nicely

Buy your 25lb bags in groups of three.  75lbs of rice will fit 2 buckets just right.  Last time I was putting some up I had to make a trip to Sam's to get 1 more bag so I didn't end up with a partially full bucket.

Eleven five gallon pails with mylar equals 400LBs of rice.

Eleven pails was the first time 50Lb bags of rice could be divided up equally.

Quoted:
38-44lbs of rice per 5
40-50lbs of beans per 5(depends on bean)


Are you sure you didn't reverse those numbers?  I've never gotten that much, but I leave an inch or two for sealing the mylar bag.

Leaving enough room to seal the bag I get 30lbs of medium-grain rice in 5 gallon buckets. I am hitting about 22-25 lbs for pinto beans. Gee, I must be doing something  wrong.

37.5lbs of Wheat / 5 gal bucket

Yes, you can fit a little more or a little less, but this way 3x 50lb bags evenly fills 4 buckets.
