Chris Franks: Hey I was wondering if I have my 7.69x39mm rounds exactly like the box on
the left in the mags how long will the bullets last without corrosion and
ruger181: Good question, I am not for sure since I don't have a shotgun. If you can't
find your answer from other videos or forums then I guess you can fill up
your .50 cal can with the ammo and let us know for sure by posting it.
ruger181: @kcd1001 Average storage for me is within 7 months. I could leave them
longer but eventually they get used and any spare unloaded mags will then
ruger181: That ammo was bought in 2006 for about 150 dollars at my local gun store.
Academy Sports here locally are selling it 5.99 for box of 20, so at this
time (21 August 2013) it will cost about 300 dollars before taxes for 1000
evo8FQ400: of a forum i found that a .50cal can can hold 224 2 3/4" shells in rows. if
anyone wants the link just send me a message.
19987mac: You seriously just made me smile :) I need to do this ....... What's the
pice for all that ammo? An were you buy it
ruger181: @PBJMORENO I had the 1,000 rounds stored in that ammo can since 2007 and do
not see any rust at all. As long you have a good seal on the lid and do not
handle the ammo with your bare oily hands, which will start some rust, then
you will be alright.
drtrolish: No its not, springs also lose compression ability from being compressed for
long periods of time. Weather or not that will have enough of an impact to
make the magazine not function is another story.
hightower338: In to houses. I'm not trying to put you down or bad mouth you I just think
that we all will have at least a couple of hours before people try to break
into houses and start taking and killing for what you have.
Anthony Kumpe: That why I load 2 or 3 mag leave 5 rounds out and don't load the rest at
frist I made the same mastake
Georgia Yankee: good way to flatten out your mag springs storing them long term fully
Brootalak47: ruger this is an awesome idea. i have 12 magazines for my ak so this will
be perfect! thanks for the vid from your new sub!
Headass357: The left side is for bug out and the right side is for bug in
swearingenmetro: About 240 of 00 2 3/4"
recordmanful: Or, you can get a lever-action rifle and get two boxes full of 357 magnum.
Dean Thorton: That is a myth. Compressed or not compressed makes no difference. It's the
action of compressing and uncompromising that wears out a spring. He's
doing nothing wrong here.
evo8FQ400: how many 2 3/4" 12g rounds can it hold loosely? thanks for the upload
Kham D: good idea, how long do you keep your mags fully loaded for.
Jesus Moreno: I was wondering how long will you store your steel case ammunition for? Do
they rust easy like in long term storage, 5+ years? I store my .223
ammunition loose and I buy steel case also. I keep the ammunition in my
safe but I have silica beads in my safe and ammunition boxes to soak up ANY
Jesus Moreno: @ruger181 Thanks for that information! I was worried about rust, good to
know you have had that ammunition for a that long.
marco Gonzalez: @ruger181 if i may add... you should get more cans and ALOT more mags and
distribute is at such... maybe a few with loose rounds... that way so you
dont have to worry...
Budget Shooter: you can hold about 250 2 3/4
josueguzman602: The only thing that sucks for me with having alota ammo in storage is I
always want to go shooting lol
Krzysztof Grabiński: Good idea. In case you had to take only one ammo can, you can always put
lose cartridges into the gaps (between magazines and ammo boxes), so you
can bring more than 500 rounds and you will still have 10 mags in it.
Randall Keizer: Ex military. Compression will ruin your mag. Always had a 30 round mag and
we never put loaded more than 27 rounds EVER!!! You are looking for trouble
if you leave mags loaded all the time and to their max.
hightower338: @ruger181 you brought up having loaded mags, the only thing I see bad about
that is wear on the spring. But what I want to bring up is if a shtf
happened say right now and you had unloaded mags I don't think that you or
anyone else would have to rush right away to get them all loaded in a hurry
but more of a ok I need to go load my mags type of attitude would be fine.
Cause I thinly for the next couple of hours everyone will be trying to get
home or the supermarkets before they start breaking
Budget Shooter: about 250
