      "Hi, I just purchased a Burial Vault from The Sportsman's Guide. I want to use it for long term ammo storage. Now I read somewhere that just before you seal this can up for good, you should put in a hand warmer packet. This packet supposedly "burns up" all the Oxygen in the container, thereby eliminating the gas that causes rusting, etc.
      Anybody hear about this?
      Any other tips that you'd like to share?
      Thanks"
      Greetings,
      I treat this the same as you would food storage items, keep in a cool dry place. the best way I know is to place your ammo into a Mylar bag w/oxygen absorbers, something like this.; https://www.amazon.com/Dry-Packs-10...TF8&qid=1482754204&sr=8-3&keywords=Mylar+bags
      I would toss a few of these in your vault as well; https://www.amazon.com/Dry-Packs-Mo...482754400&sr=8-1&keywords=anti-Moisture+packs
      With the protection the vault itself will give you that should keep your guns & ammo for several years.

      hey, they have to be heat sealed, the Mylar bags I mean, right? Can I use an iron? Or do I need a special machine for heat sealing?
