Although my original post is over 2 years old, You know how often we drive down to Duluth Matt, and we always check Superior shooters, but their source had apparently dried up Mn. Surplus same story. We are fortunately sitting on a small stock pile that we managed to get from both places prior to these businesses being unable to acquire ammo cans.

Bflentje has pointed out a military auction or two for a serious amount of cans... Perhaps the MnGCA should buy a truckload of cans as a fundraising event. Exclamation

I still watch the auctions.. unfortunately, after the final auction price, 10% fee, sales tax, and then delivery (or pickup), the price per can would not be worth my effort, which is why I've never pulled the trigger.

If you sold them AT your cost, you might be able to get rid of them all. But if you wanted to make any kind of a profit? Forget it.

I now see why Fleet Farm charges $15 a peice for them.
