    I bought a few ammo cans without lids at a garage sale. Anyone think of a use for them? They are the .30 caliber smaller narrow ones...

    Always good for trays or parts bins in the garage.

    Anything you would use the small drawer in your toolbox for or a Rubbermaid tub for, mostly.

    use them for mold for making bricks or similar things you might need or want to shoot at; parts bins, holding reloading components (like wads for shotguns); fill them with something to use them like a doorstop; and on and on

    Really good for soaking parts in solvent.

    A local ice house uses them for tip jars. :)

    Screw them to the wall or underneath your work bench for some shelving? I do that with milk crates.

    Watch the gun shows for badly dented cans or cans with bottoms with holes in them. You can buy then very cheap! Match up your bottoms and their lids and you have good cans.

    Works good as an oil drain pan for motorcycles.

    If you do any fishing they make half decent bait/chum holders.
