View Full Version : Recommendations for heavy duty plastic ammo cans?

08-18-2010, 5:35 PM
I just recently purchased some MTM plastic ammo cans, and while they seem to be good quality, the sticker on the box says "Holds up to 30lbs". I have over 400 rounds of Beowulf ammo, and I tried stuffing them inside the box. They all fit, but when I put the box on the scale, it weighed in at a hefty 45lbs. Although it seems to be okay now, I don't want to chance the handle or top popping off and have 45lbs of ammo crash down on my toes. :P

You guys have suggestions on plastic ammo cans that can handle such weight? I did notice MTM now has a can for 50bmg rounds, but they dont mention how much weight it can handle. I prefer to stay with plastic as I'm not a fan of metal milsurp cans.
