yours to be had where ever army surplus is sold.
cost may vary from place to place.
check at Fl__t F__m though their price has been rising.

Army/Navy Surplus in Fond du Lac has top quality, but you'll pay a bit more. We also have a cache placement on the property, and he has donated door prizes in the past.

Otherwise, FF in Appleton gets the 2nds.

I got mine at Sherpers in Greenfield. I paid about $10. I have no idea if that's a good price or not. Anyone?

American Science and Surplus down in Milwaukee but they are a bit pricey from what I've seen.

Fleet Farm has a ".50 cal ammo box" in Today's weekly insert for $9.99. Since haven't been to the store, not sure if this is their 'big one', of their 'small one'.

Photo of box says: 840 CRTG 5.56MM Ball - M555 10 Round Clips LC-08A382-411

Was in Tomahawk today looking at a new smoker and I decided to go to the Tomahawk Military Surplus store and holy cow they have some nice ammo cans! Reg size around $12, almost Jim size at 18 and some freakin Jim size at 22 dollars. Thought I'd get the message out since they are gettin expensive.

Where is the Tomahawk Surplus store? last time we where over there could not find it.

Me thinks somebody needs to hide a cache there so we can find the place.

Ok we found both of those when we where in town. Don't know how we missed the store unless it had to do with me thinking it was on the way out of town.

There is an antique store next to the Military Surplus store plus an antique store across the street. I believe it is on Wisconsin St downtown Tomahawk.
