MTM Ammunition Crate
Okay ammunition we all need it and regardless if you have a hundred or even many thousands of rounds the procedures for. Safeguarding your stored ammunition are virtually the same first you got to find. An appropriate container and in my humble opinion the us military got it. Right with a standard 30 and 50 cal ammo. Cans they've been around for eons, and they've performed exceptionally well for us for many years now you can find. Then at your local surplus store and hopefully at a decent price but before. Purchasing makes sure to carefully inspect each can for integrity and especially the condition of the rubber. Seal underneath the top lid as they are these 30 and 50 cal military ammo cans. Are airtight but you'll want to give your inventory extra protection from the. Corrosive effects of moisture and for that i recommend rechargeable hydra sorban 40 gram silica gel packs and these little guys have likewise worked very well for our ammo cans and for many. Years now each canister will actually cover three square feet of area but i just throw one into each and every ammo can my computer set up to issue different programmed alerts and so i get. An alert exactly every four months i then check all the ammo cans you see here actually i just do a very quick inspection but i pay particular attention to the silica gel packs by. Four months they will just begin to show a slight pink discoloration the rule of. Thumb is if the granules are blue you're good to go if they're pink they're essentially dead and need to be recharged and so every four months as a precaution i recharged the silica gel. Packs i place them in a preheated 300. Degree oven for three hours and presto they're recharged and ready to go again and you can recharge these over and over and over again here's an example like it. Says on here when it turns thick in the. Window get us tickets in a 300-degree preheated oven for three hours, so we get these. Written all right. It's already preheated to 300 here we go. Now while the silica gel packs are recharging let's look at some other storage lockers that we have here at the compound here's where we keep our ammo for classes now this is strictly for. Classes so no one ever draws from this inventory and as you can see here we've been doing quite a bit of training because this locker is usually stocked pretty well and this is in another part. Of the house and i keep most of the shotgun rounds here they're usually a good amount of 9-millimeter rounds here as well and that's been getting pretty low too so it's time for stocking up now let's talk a little bit about labeling all ammo cans should clearly state the. Following information purpose i usually put ranged offensive or hunting quantity. In this case it's 800 rounds bullet. Weight and characteristics these are 230. Grain bullets as well as being hollow points caliber and make these are 45. Caliber and they're spear gold dots you probably should also place the date of storage as well now i like to place this. Exact same information in the front top. And on both sides of the can for convenient viewing and as you can see here each and every ammo can i store is labeled in the exact same manner. Okay the silica gel canisters have been in the oven for three hours, and they've cooled off let's now place them back in their respective ammo cans And finally i like to keep this. Humidifier running in the team room at all times it's time to go on for one. Hour and then offer a half hour continually day and night it maintains. The entire room at a very safe humidity and this is not only for the ammo but. For all of our gear that is stored here in this team room i highly recommend the. Soleus air forty pint portable dehumidifiers it has been running flawlessly for over three years and it's. Also very highly consumer rated and for. Good reason it rocks ok let's recap first you need a storage. Container i recommend the military ammo can although there are many other good alternatives as well you choose what's right for you secondly if you're getting the military ammo cans make sure the. Rubber seal is in good order third label your ammo cans in the front. Top and both sides with the following information purpose quantity bullet. Weight and characteristics caliber and make and the date stored fourth protect. Your hard-earned investment against corrosive causing moisture use a silica. Gel pack in each and every ammo can fifth and if you can afford it by a. Reputable dehumidifier for your storage room which should most likely be where you also store all of your other tactical gear so that everything is protected and finally store your animals. Safely now this room here has a vaulted door so the entire room is a giant big. Safe ok that's how we do it here at the analytical survival compound i hope you at least found something useful that can. Assist you in your own ammo storage needs as always say either subtract or. Add from what I've shown you here no problem but please make it work for you. And your family ok this is an analytical survival saying stay safe my brothers. And sisters.
