I bought this item based on the positive reviews. The ammo box I received was beat to hell, not just used or weathered (nothing wrong with that) but in an overall poor condition. I could have let that go, but the worst part is the letters you see in the item pictured were carelessly spray painted over in black, it serves no purpose as it makes the ammo box look worse and doesn't actually cover up the lettering. The paint smell is so strong I had to put the box outside.

This spring I'll clean it up, sand it down and repaint it. I don't like writing negative reviews but fairly disappointed - I really don't need another item on my to do list. Not worth the return shipping cost.

I ordered mine to store batteries for my radio control electric planes. I needed a large, secure and fireproof box, since the lithium-polymer batteries which have become so popular for powering electric planes are sometimes prone to swell up or burst into flame at up to 2000 degrees F, so they're not the kind of thing to store near flammable materials or leave unprotected in a vehicle. Once it is insulated with high temperature materials I'm good to go.

These ammo boxes are larger and more capacious than most, have a solid latch, and are dirt cheap. Mine arrived in excellent condition, without rust or dents.

This thing is awesome. When I first got it, I started using it as a lunch box for a while. It's air-tight, and who cares.

Later I started using it to store my small caliber pistol rounds. Here in CA it's illegal to own .50BMG so we make do. I currently have about 4000 rounds of .22 in one, and it is very convenient to have. I have since bought two more, and use them to store my 9mm and .45 ammo. Works great, it's convenient.

So first, I would like to say that the boxes arrived quickly and they are ammo boxes! These are the only pros I can list about this purchase.
Cons: rusted, dented, hinges are hard to move. Not what I was expecting for the cash. I am planning to grind them and repairing them myself so I don't just throw them in the garage. Luckily I have the tools to repair them...but I shouldn't have to for the price! Buyer beware!

There are several pages on Amazon for .50 and .30 cal ammo cans, I purchased two of the ammo cans described on this page. Both of the cans I received were in excellent condition, no rust whatsoever, and only minor scratching on the bottom of the cans. My cans appear that they may have been repainted, which I have no problem with.

Anyone writing reviews complaining of black spray paint on the ammo can, or that the ammo can does not specifically say .50 or any other caliber on the side of the can (such as the 5.56mm displayed on the product page) has no idea what they are talking about. Soldiers in the field will spray paint empty cans black to mark them as empty. A soldier in the heat of battle would need to know which cans have ammo in them, and black spray paint marking empty cans makes identifying a can as empty quick and simple. Also, the .50 cal (or .30 cal for that matter) description of the can refers to the SIZE of the can, not necessarily which caliber ammo was stored in it. Although this size ammo can was initially made for the .50 BMG round, other ammunition is also stored in these same size cans, and the cans may be labelled as such.

I already own 3 of these due to them being decommissioned to me.
The items pictured are the actual canisters used by the US and others to store 50 CAL ammunitions.
50 cal ammo cannisters are water and air tight, even if they are deformed: aka buldging.
Highly suggested for storing flammable objects, but not large ammounts live rounds in a home environment.
Also a great case to build a ermgency pack out of in case you get stuck in your car, office, camping, or at home.

Wasn't sure what to expect, as some other reviews throughout the sellers on Amazon were not very favorable. First, ammo can looked nothing like the picture, of course Used ammo can, small dent on side. No writing or markings on it. Actually, it had been newly/freshly spray painted, it wreaks of wet paint. Lid was stuck, had to pry it open because of the paint, and the handle was actually stuck to the cardboard box (I'm airing it out now). Would not buy another one like this. I agree with other buyers, will shop around for new cans, IF I can find them at a good price.

Great product. Purchased two of these from HMI Surplus Gear through Amazon, and they arrived very quickly via standard shipping. I will be ordering more. These are your basic .50 cal ammo cans. They arrived clearly in used condition (as described by the seller); however, they were very clean and in perfect working order. On each one, when I popped the latch I could hear a long hiss of air - evidently the rubber seals are working as intended. Will use these for storing - guess what - ammo with some silica packs to safeguard against humidity.
