Hello everyone! I'm planning on planting several caches this summer, and I'm asking where you get your ammo cans? I know they come in several shapes and sizes, but since I'm planning on planting several caches, I'm mostly concerned about price. (By the way, this is my first non-CAM-related post. :D )

Dick's Sporting Goods has them at reasonable prices - and sometimes even reduced on sale!

Wal-mart has them too. In sporting goods.
Also, lock and lock containers work well.

Thanks. I've used lock-n-locks before, and they work well.
I check out Dick's the next time I'm in there. I rarely go to that store, so the thought never crossed my mind.

Bass Pro Shop and Costco have them. The price varies, so keep an eye out when they go on sale.

The most cost effective ammo can option I have found is - https://www.walmart.com/ip/Plano-1312-Ammo-Can/23247620. I don't think you will beat the $4.88 price and I have used them for both geocaching and non-geocaching uses with good results.

If you go with the plastic option, stay away from the Harbor Freight can. They don't hold up to the elements and you will quickly have a wet mess inside.
