    Mods, sorry if I'm in the wrong place, but I'm sure you'll move this if I am.....

    Where can I buy some cheap cardboard ammo boxes? Like the ones milsurp 308 comes in, nothing fancy.

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know if youre exclusively looking for the cardboard ones, but midway sells really nice plastic ones for like $2 for a 50 round box by Frankford Arsenal.

    Thanks, guys.

    I just got off the phone with the handgun-brass folks, and they were friendly as can be. I wish I could do business with them (I may for something else), but they didn't have what I'm looking for, either.

    I'm looking for a box without a tray. Just room for 20 rounds. That way they don't take up so much room.

    Thanks again for trying to help. Hopefully someone out there knows where to find these. I've searched every way I know how and can't find what I'm after. Maybe I can find a local box co. and have them make me some, I'm sure that will be cheap. :what:

    20 rounds per box? Have you tried some of the ammunition manufacturers. Some of them make speciality ammunition and box them in 20 per box. Maybe they can hook you up with whoever makes their boxes. Just a thought.

    Have a look here and see if anything fits your needs...

    I have several of the 20 (J20) and 50 (Rx-50) round boxes... they're great, and are fairly inexpensive... Up at Outdoor Outfitters the 50 rounders are $2.99 ea and the 20's are $1.99 ea...

    Midway has plastic boxes that are dirt cheep if you buy them in lots of 10. They are stupid cheep,sell or give a couple to your friends if you can't immagin ever useing 10. The rifle sizes can be had in 50round or 20 round types,quite an variety of sizes and colors. I color code,red for .357 and something else for 38sp even though they are really the same size box. Same deal for 44mag vs 44sp.

    Maybe something from The Container Store?

    One Piece Gift Boxes

    Amac Boxes Cheap, and you can see what's inside.

    It doesn't take a very large box to hold 20 pistol rounds. Is it 9mm? I used to buy Russian 9mm before I started reloading. It came in 20 round boxes, I don't remember them being much bigger than .22lr boxes. I didn't keep any of them or I'd send them to you.

    on edit: I just re-read your post and see you are looking for .308 boxes. My post wasn't much help...

    Cardboard Rifle boxes

    I have a case I think on a shelf from the 1950s when I started reloading 7.7 jap I made from GI 06 given me by my General in charge of the State National Guard to practice with for State matches PM me with your email address. They are paper printed for handloading recording with paper inserts to divide the 20 rounds.

    I reuse

    the boxes my Korean PS M2 Ball comes in. I don't tear off the top, but open the flaps. When I reuse, I put a little strip of duct tape on the top front, and a matching strip over the top of the box which sticks to the shiny surface of the tape on the front, so I can peel it off to open and re-close. Works great, and more compact than commercial boxes.
