    Nothing fancy here, except maybe for the plastic box the cases are all in. I rummage through the pile and pull out those I want to use for cleaning and reloading. I do use old cartridge boxes when it is practical or switch to the fancy plastic cartridge case boxes too. The plastic partitioned inserts in some of the ammo boxes are quite handy to use for reloading purposes too.

    I use the plastic shoe boxes from the dollar store, cheap and stacks well.

    I use Crystal Light plastic containers and laundry detergent containers. Nothing good looking.

    This is a test to see who can figure out how to upload pictures. I can’t. For a while I could, but like some great technology of the ancients it appears to be lost forever.

    Wait, maybe this....

    I use plastic shoe boxes and label them "Currently Loading", "Next to Load", and "Fired, need to be cleaned". That way my brass is rotated and all get loaded/fired about the same number of times.

    I use what ever is handy. Generally have plenty of coffee cans though. My labeling system is easily changed as well.

    I use coffee cans for most anything, hulls, casings, lead, boolits, etc....
    I also use ammo cans for primers, molds, casings, loaded ammo, etc...
    FWIW, lead tends to destroy plastic coffee cans unless stored on a flat surface.

    Zipper top bags in larger totes that sit on floor. Sharpie marked bags for status of brass, once fired, cleaned and sized, etc.

    Well...much of it is in these drawers, clean and separated into baggies...



    and the rest is in these plastic see-through jars...



    Had to eat a lot of salsa to have this many containers that match.

    Still though there's a bucket or two always hanging around the shop that needs processing and putting into place.

    Combination of heavy duty square containers that held construction screws and Folger's tall coffee containers.

    The grandkids sure like the cranapple juice. I use the empty jugs for brass holders. 500 .223 in a jug, more for handguns 45, 40, 9.
