I found about 120 rounds of 9mm FMJ I didn't know I had in a range bag!

My stash is a little larger than I thought.

Invest it wisely in a diversified growth-oriented mutual fund, and through the magic of compound ammo, by the time you're 65 you could have 1.2 million rounds.

I've been practicing ammo cost averaging for the past, oh...twenty years.

No, that'll just make it bigger. You want the "Duplicata" spell.

(And it's EnGORgio, not EngorGIO.)

Spent a few hours last night going through my range bag, ammo cans, and boxes stashed on different shelves at the house. Consolidated and re-organized, got all loose and partial boxes sorted and made room in my storage safe to maximize. Found more ammo than I thought I had i.e. box of 1000 blazer in bottom of my gun safe under stack of other stuff. Live in Florida so getting ammo in ammo cans makes a difference in lifespan. Doing this let me inventory and I’m good for a while on most calibers. Found you can fit 1200 rounds of 5.7 boxes in a .30 cal ammo can. 2400 round of WMR in a .50 can.

Those habits of buying a bit of extra after every range trip paid off - though I’ll still focus on .22 at the range with some range time on other calibers. Crazy prices now hoping it comes down.

BTW - also found this cool gadget to monitor safe humidity, GOVEE a little $35 gadget that hooks up to home WiFi and then use your phone to monitor temp/humidity in safes. Works well even with safe closed.

Some discoveries over the last few years (or so). There is a difference between how much will fit and how much you can easily lift. Ammo cans are more than just organizers. They also serve as protectors. If I can't easily lift it, its a problem. That means I don't want to pull a muscle trying to work a can full of ammo out of a safe or storage place. Ammo cans can only easily be stacked on one another, and its pretty easy to go too high. Like about 5 is as high as I want to go. A nice board will work under the bottom of them. Labels are pretty good, too. The little paint rollers (ball point paint markers). I have no idea how to remove the markings. I've got a great stencil cutter, but its in the garage and a pain to move around.

Another thing is to make a row/stack of empty cans. More than 5 high. That way you don't bother with them. If you seek a certain caliber, don't bother with any in the higher stack. With reloads, be sure to include the bullet weight on the front (the place where you marked the caliber) It makes a difference with .45-70 between 300 and 405 grain.

One moral to the story is that it doesn't matter how many will fit, its more about how much you can lift without pain. Because its your/my pain, it is important.


Unhappy ammo seeker
