Can

and you’re going to want to clear a spot on the shelf in your railroad boxcar:

Ammo In a Can is a patented process that removes the atmosphere from inside the can and replaces it with dry, inert nitrogen gas.  Without moisture or oxygen in the can, the ammunition does not deteriorate, corrode, or rust. This gives the ammo an indefinite shelf life, regardless of the environment outside the can.

Interesting concept.  Unsurprisingly it comes at a premium over what you would pay for non sealed ammo though.  Depending on how many rounds you want that are sealed, it might be worth it?  $9 for 100 rounds of .22 LR …. $22 for 50 rounds of 9mm etc..

Maybe I’m the only one that doesn’t like this other aspect of this business, but telling me the ammo is made by ______ company or simply “Made In USA” just isn’t good enough.  I want to know exactly what repacked cartridges I am buying.  To me this is a no-brainer considering they are marketing this ammo as a SHTF type solution.

For more information and a video heavy on the fear mongering then head over to Ready Reserve Ammo.

Check out the tutorial over at Instructables.  The top picture I actually grabbed from a company called thodio‘s website, where they make the ammo can speakers and sell them.  If you have more money than time and know-how, you can pick one up from them for $307 – $430 depending on the specs you want.

If you need an empty ammo can you can pick one up at your local surplus store for cheap, or on Amazon the price isn’t that bad either.

I don’t know how good of sound these things throw, but I imagine it’s probably good enough for the beach or a night of parking lot drinking.  Just be prepared to have more guys than girls impressed with your DIY expertise.

Thoughts?
