If you stored just bullets, you'd probably need a forklift to carry the darn thing. Cartridges are lighter. Each of the 20mm cans holds a selection of different calibers, a few boxes of this, a few boxes of that, but they are full. It's not a far walk from where they are stored to the truck bed.

It's not for carrying long distance, it's for taking as much as you can carry in a hurry.
