It has this key looking thing at the top, but how the hell do I use it to open the damn things?
if you happen to have the tool from a wolf spam can, i'm sure it'd work too. other than that i'd say maybe pull that tab and it'll rip the metal.
Sweet!! I bought 384rds of the same HXP ammo from CMP a while back. Haven't had a chance to open it yet though.
like a paint can
As CS said I think those pop open like a paint can, try prying under the rim of the top, or as was said use a wolf opener.
I am pissed because I missed out on a great deal on some Polish ammo. Fucking shits wont ship to my zip code.
looks like a spam can. get some sheet metal shears.
a real man would use just his hands
My first ammo can of the 7.63x54R I tried pulling the tab and it ripped off so I ended up breaking two can openers. Then came out the dremel and that worked.
My second can I pulled the tab with some needle nose pliers just to get it started then I peeled the rest with my hand.
Well I finally got one of them open, took me 20 fucking minutes of blood and twisted metal with some pliars... what a pain in the ass.
There ought to be a meteal tab ob the side that needs to be pulled up or already up. Stick that tab in the key slot and start twisting. Takes all of a minute to accomplish.
I feel like a jackass for taking pliars to the damn thing now
God damn haven't any of you kids ever opened a can of corned beef?! What is this country coming to?! It's the apocalypse I tell you! THE APOCALYPSE!!
The fewer people eating meat out of a can, the better the world is.
I'll be laughing at that post from my secret bunker when the zombies get the a-bomb and start world war 11ty billion and 3. Laughing and eating canned meat.
It says not to use as a food container. I thought old military surplus containers were perfect for heating up a can of soup.
I love the taste of melted lead solder.
Actually considering how old the ammo is, I am surprised they even bothered to warn anyone.
Bingo....there should be a small metal tab, usually on one of the top corners. Place this tab into the hole in the opener/ key and start twisting.
i dont know either. I got some polish stuff, they dont even have those tabs on it. I tore into the edge of the top with a chisel (SLOW, shallow, and make sure there is cardboard underneath) with a flat chisel, then peeled away half of it and pulled hte ammo out that side. Again. CAREFULLLLLLY.
