Ammocan presale..

Need an ammocan for your next hide? Yes, you might be able to find them. But Fleet Farm isn't selling them anymore. They're $18/each at Gander Mountain. And $20 or more at the surplus store.

$14/each for single ammo can.
$12/each when you buy two.
$10/each when you buy three or more.

And no sales tax. You'll be buying them from my garage sale.

Wow! Shocked The last time I bought an ammo can at a surplus store it was $5.

The reasons in this posting I have heard other places too so there must be some merit to it. Also, the comments about losing 20% because of crushing during the band process, I would have guessed that were true just by watching the listings over the years. Luckily, the lot I picked up all had the cans with their lids ON and they were standing upright before they were banded. So unless they botched the listing, I am confident that my loss percentage will be much smaller than 20%. I don't see any damage but I am factoring in at least a half dozen unusable cans.

Thanks for the link pfalstad.

I guess another alternative to ammo cans might be the plastic toolboxes sold by Fleet Farm or Northern Tool. Or just eat more peanut butter.

I've sold 20 more in the last week. At this pace I expect them to be gone by the end of summer. Get them while you can.

Over half my original stock is now gone. If you need ammocans, send me a PM.
