Repackbox.com is a good source for new, mil-spec ammo cans. Fresh gaskets and tight seals on the lids, not rusted or dented. Their cans really are brand spankin’ new. But not cheap. I think I paid about $16 each with shipping when I bought my last cas…

Just an interesting comparison.I like the 6.5s (Creedmore, Lapua, 6.5-284 Norma, Grendel), but when it comes to commonality, cost, I have to stick with .308WIN.https://www.shootingillustrated.com/art … is-better/Statistics: Posted by Cast Iron — Sun…
