I keep my ammo in plastic ammo boxes in my garage.
I use Steel ammo cans. Mostly 50 cal cans. Some bigger and some 30 cal cans.Anybody have a dedicated ammo storage cabinet?
For 20,000 rounds of loose pistol ammo you should only need about 15 cans. They could stack most anywhere or can be spread out.I only need to store between 10-20k rounds
I could've posted that pic, shame being I don't reload and keep all my stuff in the original boxes. However, second the idea that it needs to be in steel ammo cans, with the addition of silica packets if you live in a high humidity area.I use Steel ammo cans. Mostly 50 cal cans.

Factory boxed ammo takes up considerably more space.
Or you could get the bigger steel cans but once you fill these up you can forget about moving it.
I see some custom shelving in there. I thought about turning an old stack-on gun cabinet into an ammo cabinet. A buddy has a stack-on I could get cheap, but I think converting it would be a hassle. Doing woodwork in my apartment is a little hard. Especially since my only tools are gun tools. Maybe I can get the shelves cut at home depot or something.My first gun safe was an inexpensive Stack-On. After I purchased a better gun safe, I converted it into ammo storage, and added some wooden shelves. I suppose you could do something similar.
