for ammo cans?

Do you guys put it in your USGI ammo cans?

Uline sells a 5gal pail of them.... ( split it up amongst friends. ) They can be "reactivated" ( dried back out )

I am a little OCD about using them, and tend to replace them after a month with a fresh one for long term storage.
Reason being , the first one will absorb the majority of the moisture in the can, and the next one won't be "moist" like the first one.

Seems to work well.

Had a thought yesterday as I was looking for something in my classic Snap On toolbox . . . and noticed some impact sockets getting rust on them.

Would desiccant work in toolboxes? They are not sealed tight of course, so I was wondering.
Try some VCI plastic or paper, used as drawer liners.

I will buy the bags for rifles or handguns , cut them to fit. That stuff works.... even in VERY humid conditions.
