I already own 3 of these due to them being decommissioned to me.
The items pictured are the actual canisters used by the US and others to store 50 CAL ammunitions.
50 cal ammo cannisters are water and air tight, even if they are deformed: aka buldging.
Highly suggested for storing flammable objects, but not large ammounts live rounds in a home environment.
Also a great case to build a ermgency pack out of in case you get stuck in your car, office, camping, or at home.

Great product. Purchased two of these, and they arrived very quickly via standard shipping. I will be ordering more. These are your basic .50 cal ammo cans. They arrived clearly in used condition; however, they were very clean and in perfect working order. On each one, when I popped the latch I could hear a long hiss of air - evidently the rubber seals are working as intended. Will use these for storing - guess what - ammo with some silica packs to safeguard against humidity.
