    I use 30 cal ammo boxes to carry spent bullets. About 40 lb each. 50 lb if you stack (bigots) ingots in them.

    I wonder if a simple sifter could be made from a 5 gallon bucket ( cut slits and line with the desired mesh) on a stand with a couple bushings on it with a handle. simply put the load in and turn to agitate. At the hand turned speeds wood bushing greased well would last a long time. This would save the hand shaking or lifting. Im thinking along the lines of a mortor mixer or cement mixer. A flange bolted to the bucket and a length of pipe a hand wheel or simple handle to turn or rock back and forth to agitate.
    Or like a old fanning mill use 4 straps and hang the screen from them on the frame then a handle to agitate.
