    I need some ideas on storing a small quantity of ammo (2000 rounds 9mm). I am wanting something about 6 to 7 inches tall. Length and width really aren't a concern. If someone has any thoughts I would appreciate them. Thank you

    2k loose 9mm fit in a 50cal can with over an inch of space left at the top.

    Yep. Or split it up between a couple 30 cal cans due to weight

    Cheap option maybe not the best is to get those plastic ammo cans from harbor freight and put about 1K in each. I think they are 6-7” tall.

    Couple guys on here sell ammo cans pretty reasonable if you will watch the classified's.

    Edit ::: sorry did not pay attention, Woodward would be a long haul for an ammo can!~

    I backed over a couple harbor freight plastic ammo boxes. I had to toss them in the garbage.
    :)
    I keep tools in them ..a small set of tools for all my cars and my boat in those have saved the day a few times.
