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).

Ammo cans work great for my needs.

I pack my loose ammo into ammo cans (usually 750 in each can) when I go to train.
At the weekly IDPA training, and monthly IDPA matches; I put 200-300 loose rounds into a plastic ammo box that lives in my range bag.
It’s much quicker and easier to reload mags when you can grab the cartridges a handful at a time, instead of picking them out of their factory boxes one at a time.

Also; if you don’t own an UPLULA (mag loader), get one. They’re hands down the best mag loader that I’ve ever found. 👍
Particularly if you are going to acquire a Shield Plus. The new mags with very tight spring pressure are impossible to load by hand to full capacity.
