Well if you're like me and picked up all the range brass that goes to your guns, for years and actually reloaded it. Then you probably have a few piles of ammo that are just hanging out in ziplock bags. It's hard to look at a ziplock bag and know how many rounds are in it. Or at least it is for me. I find it easier to just be able to grab boxes by 50, 20, sometimes 25 at a time. So to fix that I bought all the cheap 44mag ammo boxes on ebay. Since all the factory ammo I ever bought for 44 mag has been fired and reloaded or originated from range brass pickup. I went to buy some used 45acp boxes and there weren't any cheap ones. Other people must have had the same idea as me. But then got it idea to search "1911 ammo" box, figured maybe I might find something. No not something, that's the mother load. There's a seller called "the ammo box guy" (but with no spaces between the words). His name is as functional as his products. He or they sell some original but mostly reproduction cardboard WW2 ammo boxes. That's it. The 45ACP boxes are pure utilitarianism, just single piece ammo boxes that fold up and hold your bullets, for $2 each shipped to your door, I think there's 7 different ones. So now my ammo can stuffed loose packed with 45acp reloads can actually go into boxes. There's also 30carbine boxes, you can get 1 or 2 piece 30 carbine boxes. The 2 peice ones are $3. I splerged and got the deluxe 2 peice boxes. Also there's 38spl, 30-06, 22LR, maybe some more. The blank white Styrofoam boxes are cheaper, if you want a lot of boxes. These are definitely cooler and the minimum order isn't 25 boxes. I'm pretty sure I don't need 25. These old style boxes pack the same number of rounds in about 2/3 of the same space and ammo cans were designed around holding boxes this size. So if you're going to put your ammo on a shelf, the cheap white boxes are best, assuming you need exactly 25 or 50... If you are going to put them in ammo cans the old style is better, unless you want to buy more ammo cans.
