.30 cal can handle failure
Anyone ever seen this before? I have a bunch of .30cal ammo cans that I use for storing and transporting various batches of my reloads. I just noticed the handle was falling off one of them. The weird thing is, I didn't realize when it happened, but the rear spot welds on the "clip" that holds the front ring for the handle have failed, letting the ring loose. At least I'm assuming that's how these things were held together...it looks like a pair of spot welds at each end.
Is this something a friend with a TIG welder can fix?
How much weight should these handles be good for? I think at one point I might have had as much as 500 combined rounds of 9mm & .45acp in it. Maybe less. Even weirder, there's very little in it right now. I can't believe it popped the welds and fell out, and I didn't notice.
