for your holiday shopping pleasure...

If you are looking for some small heavy duty storage options, this might just be right.  I tried the "best offer" option and got them for $75 (he wouldn't go any lower).  This is the best price I have found on ebay for ammo cans (with free shipping) and the ones I received were in much better than expected shape considering they are designated Grade 2.  I ordered on Saturday...they shipped on Monday...and I got them at 1PM today.  He must get these in huge lots at government auction for pennies on the dollar.  I checked with UPS and discovered the shipping cost with a commercial UPS discount is $48.89 for a 48lb box that is 12" x 12" x 30".  That means he made $3.26 per ammo can.  One has to wonder how much the military-industrial complex paid for these brand new.  63,75,48,0,B

John. Purchased the same items, ebay, from blackstarsurplus for $74.98. The cans were in better shape than anticipated. Great boxes for long term storage.
