Default Ammo cans in the SFBay Area

Does anyone know of a place to buy mil surplus ammo cans in the bay area, east bay? My local store has them but they want $25 a can. Winter is now here so I will be reloading more then im shooting so I need a place to keep then organized and dry.

Antioch Armory usually has them 925-706-1442

Ya just missed gun shows for the last two weekends. They always have them.
Actually I only started collecting Milsurps 3 years ago. I think I might own about 24...They're cheaper than guns that will most likely never get the opportunity to kill somebody...

Just order them off the internet

Cabelas has new 50cal ammo cans for $18, but they do go on sale periodically...

There is a guy in sac selling them, he comes down close enough sometimes, or if you have a buddy in sac that makes it easy, I just bought a dozen.

too bad - looks like he sold out.
If it was a snake, it would have bit me.

Ammo depot in Fairfield sells ammo cans. I saw 30 and 50 cal cans there a few weeks after they opened.
