Heavens no, just stocking up before the hoarders get it all. Actually, this is the first Mini-Mag buy I've made in some time. Good to see no limit. $8.99 a hundred ain't cheap, but I don't think we'll see it cheaper any time soon.
About 12-14 years ago, I owned a condo townhouse and I had a flooding problem in the basement. I had to move in excess of 50 ammo boxes up to the second floor from the basement. That was the last time I ever used the large 20mm ammo boxes for ammo!
I got a bunch of the 5.56MM ammo can's when I was instructing for the Fed's. On the up and up, I asked what to do with the empties and was told "just toss them in the trash", I decided the "trash" was the back of my pick up. I split them with two other guy's. They are waterproof and very handy. I should have kept more!
