Vanderboegh: Praxis -- Packaging is Everything

Mike lays out the basics re ammunition for non-target-range uses.

Go read, then do.

Alea iacta est.

What Mike has said is spot on. Any ready use of ammo from spam cans and from 20-round boxex is not quite the right idea (although, with the very old Chinese spam cans with their three stripper clips in a paper pack, I can imagine a cohort with the spam can, squatting on a Saigon street, handing out those paper-wrapped packages of thirty rounds as the fighters went by him during Tet.)

Ammo as bought needs to be broken down. End packaging onto stripper clips in bandos, and into .30 caliber cans, is a good idea. When the bandos are put in a .30 cal can, what room remains is generally enough for one box of .22LR, a set of earplugs, and another 20-round box of pull-downs loaded with those funny looking Isreali bullets that have two cannelures.

Old Mexican match procedures involved there with the swapping of bullets, there's no pressure problems that raise their heads while going to the Isreali bullets.

Can by can, every USGI .30 cal ammo can should be packed that way.

Then be thinking dispersal of the cans from your usual abode.
