    I print labels on plain white paper, and tape them to the ammo cans with quality tape.
    Then I stick identical copies of that label in whatever container (usually ziplock bag) within the can.

    I quit trying to scribble information on somebody else's idea of what I need to know about my reloads a long time ago.

    Those Avery labels stick to ammo cans like bumper stickers on a Mercury.
    When you want to peel-off your Mondale-Ferarro sticker, you've got a real annoyance on your hands.

    Easier to sell the car!

    Actually, they peel of plastic ammo boxes pretty well.

    There are some labels with the Post-it note adhesive on them. They should remove ok. I have some under trial but they have not been stuck on the boxes for very long yet.

    I also like to create my own label to put the info on that I want.

    I do the same for pistol rds on my MTM boxes of 100.
    If I change the label, I tape another one on top of the old.
    Scotch Magic Mending Tape hasn't ever come off

    I print the simple one-line labels, lots of labels, and cut them off as needed.
    All other detailed info kept in my records.

    Yeah, they do.

    Unlike the Mondale-Ferraro bumper sticker kind, the "removable" labels are self-removing over a fairly short period of time.

    All of that is why I just use plain paper and good Scotch tape.

    I would not doubt it.

    For years, no decades, I have been using Post-it notes for labels for a long time. I just write the info on them, then I put them inside the ammo box. The label sticks inside the box for a looooong time. With the Post-it notes not having adhesive over the entire sheet, there is a tab that gets caught on something and the label gets pulled off. (I have also used file card stock cut to smaller size and placed in the box.)

    I decided to try the pre-cut labels and print blanks to be filled out. If the adhesive does not hold over time, I will return to putting the label inside the box. I probably then won't buy any more labels.

    I put new labels on the boxes each time the box is used. I reference a lot number so that I can trace the ammunition back to my reloading records. I like to be able to remove the label and not leave debris behind or take forever to remove the sticker. I was never a fan of Mondale-Ferraro any way.

    It works for me, but it is not the only way to label ammunition. What ever works for the individual is the best.

    I sort my ammo in 50- 100-150-200 round quantities in quart ZipLoc freezer bags inside of ammo cans. the can is labeled with caliber and whether it is lead or jacketed. I use old paper scraps (cut up envelopes etc.) with load data stuffed in the baggie. When it is time to reload the empty brass in the baggie I pull out the paper and load them up same as what I used and replace them in the ammo can. Easy for me to do--a sort of inventory control if you will.:)

    I print these on Avery 5163, ten 2x4 per sheet. I stick them on my 100 round plastic ammo boxes. I overlap them so I can see how many times that particular box has been loaded. Occasionally pull them all off without any problem. Some I had on for 40 years were a little harder.:D

    I use Avery's Repositionable shipping labels #58163. They are removable.

    Sme here, I created my own label in Word and use a Stock Avery label set that the software recognizes. Easy-peasey way to have a label that records only what info I want for less $$ than store-bought someone else's idea of what data I need.

    I use a label maker that prints single spaced words/letters on lables that can be removed. These are designed for crafts, I use the one they have at work but thought about suprising my wife with a scrapbooking gift!

    I label all my ammo boxes/cans with these. I print one for all the important information, caliber, bullet type, powder, powder charge, and OAL. From time to time I put the bullet mfg. on as well but I don't have that many different bullet. If I change a portion of the load say powder charge I simply remove that single label and replace with the correct charge label.
