If you’re like me, you try to find ways to repurpose used containers instead of just tossing them in the trash. I have several round mint containers piling up and I’ve been trying to figure out a use for them. I keep my work-out headphones in one, but I was at a loss for the others. Driving with my 9 y/o son the other day, he looked at me and said, “It would be cool if you could keep some of your ammo in them.” Out of the mouths of babes!
As soon as I got home, I washed one of them out and set it to dry. Even putting a silica packet in it the next day, to make sure I got all of the moisture out of it. If the silica packet is small enough you can even fit it in with the ammo. They hold an even 50 .22 bullets in each “puck”. That really comes in handy if you buy .22s in bulk, and if you don’t, you should! It also replaces the little rectangular 50 ct. ammo boxes that can be a hassle to open once they get banged around. They are also reusable and fit in your pocket. Wanna track and rotate your ammo? Write on the lid with a permanent marker. When you reload the puck simply clean off the writing with some hand sanitizer. (BOOM! a tip within a tip!)
When you’re dealing with ammo, portability is the key and these round containers fit easily into your pocket, purse and even your bug out bag. 10 little pucks can be spread throughout your bag, or even fellow shooters, redistributing the weight more evenly. They also make it easier to share ammo with said fellow shooters, toss them a puck instead of your whole box.
