    I use an old Eddie Bauer diaper bag for my range bag. Lots of pockets inside and out and it's big enough to accommodate one or two pistols, a spotting scope, and lots of ammunition. The ammunition goes in the magazines, and reused ammunition boxes. I also have a good supply of ammo stored and carried in ziplock bags.

    18 compartments perfect fit for 223 with 30+ rounds per. Partitions can be removed for longer rounds. They make just about any box you could want.

    I usually empty factory boxes of bullets into ziplock bags, and carry them to the range in a .50 cal ammo can. Ammo gets heavy, and it will break zippers, straps in clips in stuff that was not designed for ammo.

    I have a separate bag for muffs, markers, stapler, tape, paper targets, zip ties, leatherman etc.

    Handguns--An WW2 vintage canvas bag holds staple gun, tape, muffs (I come with my own eye protection) pasters, notebook & pencil, coffee can for policing brass, Necco wafers, targets, magazines/speed loaders, Bore snake and ammo (factory boxes if factory loads, MTM plastic boxes if hand loads.) A padlocked MTM pistol box also fits in the bag, fulfilling the CA State law regarding transporting in a locked container.

    Shotguns--in 25 shell boxes, to be dumped in the pockets of a shooting vest or shell bag, depending on the weather.

    CF Rifle--most everything fits into a Fat 50 ammo can which I also use as a rest, with a surplus Bergen pack for protective padding.

    RF Rifle--a box of 50 fits in the pockets of my blue jeans and, with a roll of Necco wafers, call it good.

    I have done a number of things.

    Early on it was just boxes of factory ammo and leave the brass since I wasn't reloading.

    Later it was MTM or similar plastic ammo boxes for reloads and some means of returning home with the empty brass. Paper bags worked fine.

    When I started shooting IPSC I used old plastic one gallon milk jugs with a big hole cut into them opposite the handle. I used one for ammo and one for empty brass.

    Later I had a range bag that had an ammo bag with two compartments. One for ammo and one for empties.

    I've also used the blue or red plastic open top tool boxes.

    Wife bought me a gym-type bag from the NRA that I've used ever since. It's pretty heavy duty, and seems to hold all the crap I throw in there. Caldwell rest, ammo, glasses and muffs/earplugs, tools, even has a built-in mesh bag that I use for brass. I empty that whenever I think of it, or when I need the brass. Even got room for a couple pistols, but I don't use it for such, as I have all the carrying cases I need.

    I load everything I shoot (rimfire excepted, of course).

    Whenever I order brass, I also order some plastic cartridge boxes from Midway or Midsouth Shooter Supply and once the brass is processed, it is stored in the boxes until it is loaded, carried to the range and fired. Any empties I can find go back in the box that brought them to the range because I will keep track of those cases until they are either "lost in the weeds", fail or I just no longer trust them.
