Walmart carries decent 50 cal metal cans and at a good price.

They’re used and cheap. Buy 10 and take advantage of the free shipping and $11 per can price tag.

I’ve ordered them three times and out of thirty cans, I haven’t had an issue.

Walmart has the 50 cal cans.. they arent milsurp and im sure they are made of chinesium but they do work.

Personally, the 50 cal can get back breaking, i much prefer the smaller 30 cal.

Harbor Freight also carries the Chicom knock off 50 cal cans.

Like posted above, better deals can be had buying used online in bulk.

Yeah was good when Costco was selling the 50/30 cal can pack. Bought a bunch of them at the time. Nice to have both sizes. Down side to the Chicom cans (at least the pile that I have) is they don't stack flush like the USGI cans do. They stack slightly higher than USGI cans. Don't care but others might.

Not that this solves your needs, but I'm amazed how much lighter things get with aluminum-cased ammo and lead-free bullets (ARX, RNP, Sinterfire, etc.)...

Yup, a .50 cal can packed with .45 ACP ball is quite a handful to lug around.

Harbor freight makes sense. Use a 20% off coupon  plus a freebie coupons  ftw!  :banana:

Thanks for the info.  I actually want both the 50 and 30 can. 50 for storage.  And 30 to take to the range.
