    I would buy until they were too backordered to fill it.

    Still a decent deal though, eh?

    Don't stack up on too many .30 cal cans, I wish I'd gotten way more .50s....

    I can get .50s locally for $5, but this is still a pretty good deal.

    Thats what they sell for at the gun show. Not bad, but as posted above i wish i had picked up at least one .50 cal. These .30 cal dont hold much.

    dimensions of a box of your 7.62x39? :mamoru: I'm trying to find out if people make those stackable trays for .30cal cans like they do for the .50cal boxes.

    I was only able to fit 300 rounds of 8mm Mauser in one.

    Approx. 10" L x 3.5" W x 6.75"H

    I just bought a .50 cal ammo can over the weekend for $10 locally. Still in pretty good condition. How many boxes of .223 can I fit in it? Theyre in 200rd battle packs right now.
