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
