What do the 7.62 sell for these days?

Just make sure to put a big sticker on the outside saying it's a geocache or it looks like a bomb to some folks and anchoring it with a cable or chain, as muggles tend to run off with them.

I got the *special* discount!

OK, they probably were $3 each -- I've slept since then. Still a good deal!

I think it depended on the size of the can. Some were $2 and some were $3 and there was no tax and she delivered them to Houston.

Heck, I wish I had bought more from MOS when he was selling them for $7 each!

This auction for ~2520 .30 cal ammo cans right here in Texas recently ended.  They went for $6251.00, or $2.48 each!

You forgot about the 10% buyer's premium.  But that's still under $2.73 plus s/h   ;)

 

Ok.  Somehow, mentally, under the influence of some Advil Cold & Sinus, I could rationalize that 2520 ammo cans were not that many.  Thinking they could take over a garage, Rich & Lola's car (seems to have infinite storage space for KX, anyway) and such.  Until I saw that that constituted 40 pallets.  40 pallets!  Each pallet being about 48" x 40" x 42".  Good, Lord.  Rich & Lola's car is out now.  As is my garage and most people I know.  But man, what a deal.

 

Perhaps HC is hinting that when he moves over to the HCWinery area that he'll have space for this kind of thing and will give us great prices on ammo cans while supplementing his retirement income.  Seems win-win to me.

I know they are on shown open, but if you closed 'em all up and threw a tarp over them, why would you need to keep them inside?  Sure, closing 2000+ cans would take some time... and some friends.  I'm thinking  a "C3 Event"   (Cachestacker Can Closing)

Not to mention shipping them from Texarkana to Fredericksburg wherever.  Yeah, I could see some part-time income opportunity here.

 

Of course, if I sold 10 to every geocacher I know, I'd still have 1560 left over!

Had a friend a while back with a 50 trailer said he would go to the dallas one and back to bmt for 400.  I thought about it. But like you HC where would I store them??

I've seen some of the smaller lots like that go for $6-8 each.
