    What do you store your boolits in?

    I have used various repurposed plastic containers, cardboard boxes, etc., but some simply aren't strong enough. I think my favorite is the plastic cases that berrys sells plated bullets in. What do you use?

    Peanut butter jars, cashew jars or planters peanut jars, Honey roasted of course. I use the square ones for loaded rounds to.

    I put a lot in zip lock freezer bags with a paper label inside with date & load, then store those in GI ammo cans.
    I used to use one of those vacuum bagger things, but it broke, and I haven't found another one at Goodwill.

    If it'll get used fairly soon, I'll put pistol stuff loose in a ammo can,
    Or rifle ammo in the 50 rd. plastic boxes inside a 20mm ammo can.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Never ask an old person, "how are you doing"?
    They eagerly look forward to telling you,,,,,,,, and ya really don't want to know.

    Plastic coffee containers
    Due to the price of primers, warning shots will no longer be given!

    Coffee cans. Print a label, and tape it on.

    that depends .

    unloaded ammo is in plastic Tupperware.

    loaded ammo is in plastic ammo boxes.

    fired bullets are in my backstop waiting for collection.

    self defensive ammo is in a magazine ready to go.

    Yes, but then you would have to drink Folgers.

    Lubed boolits are stored in old plastic trays from commercial ammo boxes. Over the years, I accumulated several hundred from the trash bins behind our club's 25-yard pistol line and from the commercial range where I shot in a winter bullseye league. PC'd boolits are stored in plastic food storage containers from Dollar General...multi-functional, stackable, and cheap.

    Plain cast bullets for my 9mm are in an old ammo can. Those that are sized and lubed are in an old Tupperware container, the others are stacked nicely and separated by a piece of paper and put into some inexpensive plastic boxes I found at Hobby Lobby. I don't have as many cast rifle boolits, those that are ready to load are in the same style box as the 9mm, the ones that need sizing are in an old plastic pencil box I obtained from my late wife. I do have a few rifle boolits in a white cardboard box.

    Labeled ziplock bags. Those are then stacked/piled into cardboard boxes by caliber.

    Cast and unlubed bullets go in recycled plastic jars. Sized and lubed bullets get stacked in cigar boxes.

    The woman bought me Gladware containers. Quart sized containers for unsized boolits, pint sized for sized boolits.
