Jax in Fort C. They actually just opened a Jax mini store in Lafeyette. Dangerous store take cash and not you CC or you could find much more than you should buy!

Surplus Tools on Alameda west of Santa Fe usually has ammo cans. Just inside the front door and to the left before you even make it to the counter. His selection turns over quickly so if he doesn't have it when you go, check back later. I don't recall how much he gets for the 30 cal cans

I need to make sure I'm clear here, what I am looking for are the 20mm ammo cans, sometimes called rocket boxes by river guides (which is not necessarily 'cause they held military rockets, tho). It's what they use for their groovers. These are pretty big. Imagine something big enough to fit a toilet seat and use as portable throne. The 20mm boxes hold 100 rounds for the M61 Vulcan Gatling like on the front of Apache gunships.

The main thing is the lids have two latches and come off a lot easier than single hinge type boxes.

If you have a deep, dark seeded desire to know all about our U.S. mil-spec ammo boxes... Search on 'M-548' to find the 20mm can.

I've seen them available back home in NY, but I think shipping would kill any deal on those things.

Been looking for them too, let me know if you find some and I'll do the same. I checked both Jax locations last week, they had them but they were really banged up. I need 1 for a groover and 2 to store food. With a few minor mods the 20mm cans meet the USFS requirements for bear resistant food containers. We found out last year that Arapaho NF is starting to require BRFC's for all campers not just backpackers.

This might be something to consider. You can find them online for a decent price but shipping usually kills that. Maybe there is a way to get a bulk order, like a dozen or two, shipped on a pallet or something.

Yeah, don't need anything really specific so any of the roughly 20mm and 30mm sized cans would work, i.e. USGI M-548, M-592, PA-125, PA-156, etc.
