    I have a decent stockpile of .223 from wolf but I really hate the way they package the ammo. I was wondering if there’s an advantage to leaving it in the packaging or repacking it in an amnio can.

    I throw all mine in cans labeled per caliber.

    All my bulk shit gets thrown in the same bin, sorted by caliber/type. E.g. Tula .223 goes in one can, XM193 goes in another. Anything actually worth a shit (HD, carry, precision, 300blk subs, etc) stay in their original boxes so that I can track lot numbers.

    If you plan on leaving it there for YEARS, leaving it in the package theoretically stops corrosion by preventing metal on metal contact. But again, it takes years or extremely atrocious humidity.

    I put mine in plastic ammo containers before competition. Makes it easier to grab ammo and load mags.

    For my main calibers (5.56, .22 lr, and 9mm) I buy 1k+ at a time and dump it all in .50 cal ammo cans sorted by caliber. I load mags straight out of the cans and transport to the range preloaded.

    For .308, 30-30, .45 ACP, and other calibers I don’t shoot as often, I do keep it in the original boxes and store the entire boxes in ammo cans.

    Its wasted effort to repack it all. If you hate the way its packaged, repack maybe 1k rounds at a time and leave your safety stock in its original packaging.

    I rebox mine. I like plastic boxes of 50 or 100. I can use my ETS loader with them and I don’t need to keep up with wax paper/cardboard boxes/ staples at the range.
