I keep mine in old metal coffee cans (stackable) and after they are lubed and sized they are lined up in cigar boxes.

Hell you guys don't seem to have many.

I cast by 2 gallon buckets full. and leave
'em there til used up. Most years a bucket
of each are shot up. Then the next winter I
cast another bucket of each, or top off the
last one if not empty yet.

Casting and loading are my winter hobbies.

Put me down as a ziplock freezer bag kinda guy. The bullets stay nice and shiny, they stack easy and you can pick the bag up easily unless it's really full.


for every hour in front of the computer you should have 3 hours outside

Just put a lid on the bucket to seal them.

Bullets will stay clean a mighty long time that way.

buckets sitting under the edge of the loading
table. Need more, just reach down and grab a
handful.

Bad Ass, how are the painted bullets working out for you? I haven't seen a report from you.

I'm surprised your bride didn't dump the bullets and put those lovely boxes to a better use.

I am achieving excellent results with gas checked and powder coated bullets in my centerfire rifles. 223 with 55gn bullet at 2,700fps with no signs of leading.



The best results have been with the 7.62x39 driving a 190gn bullet to 2164fps with good accuracy.

I'm using discarded pistol ammo plastic trays salvaged from the range. They hold 50 bullets in individual holes, per tray and stack nicely.

I like it. I have been wondering what to use to store my bullet swaging dies in. A couple small versions of that would do nicely. tu2

The small calibre rifle and pistol bullets are stored in plastic jars.
