I've read the ammo faq and the info on the Maryland ar15 site about storing ammo in bandoliers in 50cal cans. I am going to order the cans from CTD due to the fact that the lowest price I've seen locally is $15. But when I look at CTD's site there's 3 different sizes and I don't know which one it is as I've found nothing other than "use a 50cal ammo can."

So what size is supossed to be used?

A word of warning: Watch out for the shipping/handling charges from CTD. They USED to charge what I considered very high S/H fees. And the cans that a friend of mine ordered were not in the best condition...Lots of dents & rust...JMO, YMMV.

5 cans at 3.95 each worked out to 27 with s/h. Still much cheaper than local. but if they're going to be of questionable quality, I'll pass. Anyone have suggestions of where to mail order some from? Nismofun

I just got 3 regular sized 50 cal cans from CTD today. I was really pleased to see no dents and light, minor rust.

I also orderd 3 .50 cal cans from CTD. They only had some dust and minor rust on them wich came off easyly with a dish rag.

1000 rounds (50 boxes) of Q3131A just fits in a standard 50cal ammo can if you carefully arrange the boxes.
