What to do: Bulk Ammo (after opening the box)?

Q: What to do about bulk ammo original packaging that falls apart or starts to take up too much space when the contents get low?

I often buy bulk ammo online.
If there are enough rounds, over time, inevitably the original cardboard box deteriorates to the point where it just isn't worth trying to use it for transport to the range. And when the box gets low, it takes up needed space.

I'm investigating the below as a possible solution and wanted to share it with you:

On sale at Amazon now (-30%). $15 with prime membership for the two bags.
One bag is slightly smaller than the other. (FYI).

Mine arrived today, and I plan to try to stuff about 300 rounds of 9mm in the larger one.
I'll report back.

The bags are well made, with what appears to be a very solid zipper.
The bottom of the bags are reinforced, gusseted (to keep them upright), and made of "2520 ballistic material", whatever that is.

I'm familiar with Klein tool bags that cell tower crews often use -- and those are durable.
I'm hoping the same is true for these smaller bags (and on first inspection, that seems to be the case).

I prefer either 1) MIL SPEC .30 cal or .50 cal ammo cans with their air/water tight seal or 2) commercial plastic ammo cans, also with an air/water tight seal for long term storage of bulk ammunition. They also help keep 50 count ammo boxes in good shape and either type ammo cans also stack nicely on shelves setup for that purpose. 🤠

Agreed . I like canvas tool type bags for ammo to and from the range . UPLULA loaders are indispensable and easy on the fingers.
Point of clarification: Do you use these canvas bags for storage AND transport of loose ammo, or is the ammo kept in their [factory] boxes in these bags? :unsure:

I like those canvas bags for carrying things around, too and have several. However, since I keep ammo stored in ammo cans with seals, it's quite easy to transport it to/from the range that way, too. Otherwise, I'd have to transfer the ammo to those bags first befor transport.
Negative .. I only use them for transport to the range . The boxes i keep in a large record cabinet & can see them through the glass .. Now as in LGS , I don't keep them in metal ammo boxes per se . However they do not leave the house that way .. Yes factory ammo in my range bags . I never carry any loose ammo ever .
My ammo stays in the factory boxes inside my ammo cans, except for the times I've bought bulk ammo in cans that come as loose rounds. For example, last year I bought 1K of reman 115 gr 9mm copper jacket ball range ammo from 2A Warehouse for $0.237/rnd shipped that came in two 500 round plastic ammo cans and I left it that way because I was running all of that through the P-365X-MACRO (not a single failure, BTW).
