Are there any downsides to storing loaded ammunition in a large coffee can? I have military ammunition cans but was wondering if there was any downside to coffee can storage?

Nope i do it all the time. I like the gallon sized maxwell house containers. They have that handle which makes it easier to hold.

any downside to coffee can storage?Only if your house catches on fire.

In that case, steel GI ammo cans will contain all the shrapnel & flying primers.

It could make the difference between the firefighters putting out the fire, or standing by and watching it burn.

Personally I use peanut butter and spaghetti sauce jars but I suppose a coffee can might be ok ;)

Thanks. I reconfigured my GI cans and it is ok for now. I appreciate all of your replies and as a former firefighter, I also appreciate the advice about protecting others if catastrophe strikes.

Go for it. I store ammo in 5 gallon buckets.
