I have an ammo can filled w/ Xm193--800+ in boxes (I think) went onto stripper clips and there is A LOT more room now--1 50cal can.

I believe that you can get approx 1200rds into a can on stripper clips.

someone will be right along w/ the perfect answer...

One can with room left for more.

1,000 on just strippers clips fits with plenty of room to spare.

If you pack the stripper clips into four pocket bandoleers with the cardboard inserts, you can fit up to 840rds in one .50 can. I always seem to have trouble fitting the seventh bandoleer in and wind up with only 720.
