Nice video eochief66, I have both metal and plastic ammo cans. Although I never put them under water for a year, I have left one plastic and one metal ammo can (both m-Tee) outside in the weather for over a year and neither had water in them.

Always check the gasket before long term storage. I know guys that also put a bead of silicon over the gasket and then close them up, I'm sure this would help.

One thing I learned from the video was not to trust ACR rifles. As for ammo cans, for any kind of long term storage I use metal cans. Usually the only time I use plastic ammo cans is for temporary storage if Im transporting or if Im at the range.

I remember this UTube - the cluck uses good ammo for the testing and ruins a whole box full - should have loaded it down with rocks and a roll of TP ...

Yeah, I had to chuckle seeing that the field test used real ammo vs. rocks. Glad he shared his results, but one could have guessed the results if the gaskets were inspected first.
