Ammo in a Can

Ammo in a Can provides long-term ammunition storage, protecting it from rust and corrosion, for a variety of popular calibers.


Storing ammunition for long periods of time has often been problematic, resulting in corroded ammo that can cause jams and malfunctions.

Ammo in a Can from Ready Reserve Ammo contains high-quality factory ammunition from ATK that has packed with inert nitrogen gas in the can to protect the ammunition.

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. The can is enameled to insulate the rounds from electrolysis. Just use the pop-top lid to open and the plastic overcap will give the remaining rounds reasonable containment and protection from the elements.

Ammo in a can is available in the following calibers and quantities:

• .22 Long Rifle, 40 grain CPRN in 333 and 100 round cans

• 9 mm Luger, 115 grain FMJ 50 round can

• .38 Spl. +P, 158 grain FMJ 50 round can

• .40 cal S&W, 180 grain FMJ 50 round can

• 12 Gauge, 2 3/4 inch Reduced Recoil 00 Buck 5 round can

• 5.56, 62 grain XM855 Penetrator FMJ 30 round can

• 7.62 X 39 mm Soviet 124 grain FMJ 25 round can

Thats all well an good if you need to store the ammo for very , very long periods of time , say 30yrs or more. I have used ammo that I had purchased fifteen yrs prior and it (Federal 45ACP Hydrashock) performed just as good as brand new. The key is not to let your ammo sit around in a damp/humid environment, keep it in the house where the temp is controlled and pack it away neatly in a plastic bin with plenty of silica gel. Not saying this is as good as being in an inert nitrogen gas environment but this is sufficient for most situations.

I have sealed a lot of my ammunition with my Food Saver Vacuum sealer. I included a desacant pack with each box of ammo and have it stored in a secure place with other large desacant packs in the container.

Interesting concept. It's a shame the packages don't hold more in the center fire versions, and also that rectangular cans aren't available. The round cans end up with a high cost per round and a bulky storage area per round.
