    I took these pics in 2020, ran across them while cleaning out old pics.

    Photos are in 100 round increments with ruler in can. In LC brass, 23.2gr WC842, 55gr fmjbt weighs in at 37.81 lbs including the can.

    1300 rounds settle in with room for a desiccant package and just a little shake room with lid closed.

    Wow Mgdref, to have thought of something like that, there are corners in your mind no one should ever explore. <grin>
    LOL
    That was something my dad used to suggest if one of us kids announced we were bored.
    He had many such suggestions...

    We soon learned to amuse ourselves. LOL

    I've got a few cans with 5.56 packed in bandoliers on 10 round strippers somewhere. Can't remember how many are in the can.
