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:

Brown Rectangle Textile Font Pattern

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).

30 cal cans for me. 50’s for storage long term, transfering to 30’s for range time. Some time back Trapper and I were going to a revolver class in Sebring area. He had his suv hatchback. I had metal cans, he had plastic cans. Somehow he didnt secure the hatch and coming out of my development he floored the audi and we heard a noise. He pulled over (5:30 on a sunday), and found his plastic can on the ground with 500 rounds of 45acp all over the road. My can was intact sitting on the pavement. Fortunately it was early on a sunday and traffic was non existent. We scrambled around picking up ammo, laughing, and got it all up pretty fast before any cars came through. That incident alone convinced me that metal mil cans were the only way to go……..
