I gave up on cardboard boxes and peel and stick labels for my ammo.

These are Cardinal Hold-it #21810 labels.
Sometimes called Spine Labels. They are 1"x3" peel and stick 12 packs with perf card inserts. I got them from Staples for <$5. There are a number of other sizes to choose from.

Yep, absolutely. I have a BUNCH of old Avery labels that are about 1x3". I stuck them in my printer and created a label that reads as follows:

Date:
Cal:
Bullet:
Powder:
Primer:

I print out a dozen sheets at a time and use them all the time, hand writing in the blanks.

There's nothing quite like reaching for a box of ammo and wondering "now what was this load again?" Smiler

Robert

Not a bad idea. I have been keeping a large ledger for over 40 years on load data,etc. I also keep seperate areas of bin space for calibre specific.For seperate marking purposes I use silver duct tape.

A darn good idea!! I work in a pharmacy & can format my own labels...guess what I'll be doing tomorrow!! They're 3.25" x 1.75", could probably fit that info 4 times on each label & cut them off the wax backing as needed!!

Morning fellas;

One of my friends works at what used to be Kinkos as management.
She brought me a box full of misprinted business cards. The group who had them printed went out of business and Kinkos was throwing the cards out.
I use a Ziplock bag for my ammo container. There's 100 rifle rounds, 300 357 rounds, etc. per bag. I write down the data and drop it into the bag, zip it closed and drop the first bag into a second bag. When the bag is empty the card comes out and is stored for future reference.

I do the same thing as rnovi, except when I print them, I print two, one for the box and one for the target. It only takes a second to fill in all the specific load info. That way I know it was 57.1 grains and not 57.7 grains, since I can't read my own writing some days. Smiler

I use this thing that my wife bought for Scrapbooking, it turns any paper into a sticker. I print my labels on regular paper, cut them to size, run them through this thing them stick them to the case (shown in the picture)

Works Great

The DYMO Labelwriter Twin Turbo can handle a wide array of label sizes up to 2" x 4". Windows operating system required ... which is sad, because I now use Linux exclusively.

It easily prints as few as one at a time up to as many as the roll can hold and will, if desired, number them sequentially (great for keeping a log book synchronized).

This is not an adv for that product. I've owned one for years and found it just the thing for most of my labeling needs and thought I'd pass this info along.

With the cost of printer ink, making labels can get costly. Instead I had a custom self inking stamp made and use it to make labels for my handloads. Cost of the stamp was about $15.00.
