Below is the amount of loose ammunition you can store in .30 caliber cans and .50 caliber cans.

Caliber - .30/.50

• 9mm - 1200/2200
• .40 - 1000/1750
• .45 - 770/1300
• .556 - 600/1200
• 7.62x51 - 320/640
• 12 gauge - 140/250



I'll update this as I progress with loading more boxes.

Are you stacking or dumping?
