    mold box

    I use the pictured Sistema snack containers as opposed to cardboard. Stack great and have a little spot for the pins to go in. Also helps that they are air tight so great for Long storage if needed. Cost about $5 at local grocery store (Meijers for anyone in Mich/Ohio/Indy), sadly their $14 on amazon.



    Yes I color code them by caliber and pink is for 40 cause itís for my wife.

    Edit: wife pointed out that if you have a Container Store near by they also carry Sistema brand containers like the one pictured

    Check your local Office Depot or Staples or equivalent.

    My Office Depot has lots of Small plastic boxes. I just saw a fair selection when I was in Office Depot last week. Going back next week with a Accurate 5cav. Hope to find something.

    I know you asked for the cardboard boxes but I use these containers from harbor freight. They hold multiple molds and thereís little wasted space. If your molds are his Cramer style they fit perfectly between the dividers.

    If I am not going to be using a mold for a while I vacuum seal it in a "Food Saver Bag". I also seal keeper ammo and other items in these bags. It wouldn't protect you from a direct fire, but definitely from a flood.

    I bought a bunch of different size boxes on the bay. Shapes and sizes.
    kraft white box = 2-300
    kraft box = 36-3700
    Used to store jacketed projectiles after tumbling in stainless pins to clean smoke etc off of them.
    YMMV

    Valley-Shooter - Another way to look at it is that you could do a bulk purchase and split those 100 say 5 ways? Just a thought.

    ................I use 2 sizes of those cardboard boxes from U-Line. They're great to have for all kinds of small stuff. Besides mould blocks they're nice for storing cast boolits in also. Since they're not airtight, for moulds I wipe down the blocks (iron or steel) with a silicone impregnated cloth. Drop them into a zip-loc plastic baggie with a VPI chip, then back into their (labeled) box. VPI paper is available from Brownells and other places.

    BTW, once a year shortly after new years, in addition to swapping out batteries in the smoke detectors etc, I pull out all the mould boxes. Wipe the moulds again and replace the VPI chips.
