Just Saturday the wife dragged me out to Canton TX for first Monday trade days, which has got to be the worlds largest flea market. Lo and behold amongst the forever sharp knives and personalized gamma/pawpaw crap I found .50 cal ammo cans 2 for $15. One building over 2 for $25. Snagged 6 USNA
Ammo cans have really increased in price over the past 5 to 7 years. I remember going to get 50 caliber cans at the local gun show in Orange County, CA, 3 for $10 and we thought that was high. What happened? It seems that ammo cans are becoming a very valuable commodity.

Like most military surplus, ammo cans are being crushed, rather than put on the commercial market. This, in combination with an increase in demand, has led to a vast shortage of ammo cans. Companies are starting to manufacture them in China, and are selling them for the same prices as GI cans.

Our local surplus store has risen the prices of .30 cal ammo cans from $6.99 to $19.99 over the past 5 years. .50 cals went from $9.99 to $24.99. They can hardly find the bigger cans anymore.

People need places to put all that .22 long rifle that they have been buying up over the last year or so!

I lost all of my rifles & handguns in a mishap on Rio Grande when the barge hit a sandbar and sank.

I was wondering about this the other day myself... I need to start scrounging. I hate spending as much on shipping as I do on a product. I was REALLY eyeballing some 40mm cans at work the other day...might have to talk to some folks.

Of course I cleaned up the garage a bit last weekend and found a .50cal can. GI1 SCORE... my very small amount of powder now has a home.
