I have used a few plastic ammo cans but not for caching. The only drawback was on a few of them, the locking mechanisms broke. They were being used harder than a person would hope a cache would be, I'd think they would hold up nearly as well as the metal cans. And much better than a film canister or nano!
DNFTT! DNFTT! DNFTT!
"The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it..."
All the nano's are gone
They are still giving away buttons (FTF and "I Love Geocaching") and bumper stickers.
I just now checked my email and had a message. "Last nano we have. I will get it in the mail to you ASAP." Woo Hoo, gota love promotions.
I've used these dry boxes http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/se...dry%20box&sr=1
which I bought from Boater's World. The boxes hold up well outdoors. They come in dark green, too (with a removable ammo tray), much easier to hide in the woods.
The Boater's World near me shut down, so I recently bought one at Dick's Sporting Goods, but I cringed at the price. (More than the current online price. Why that?)
There's no Cabela's close by me, and I like to check stuff out before I buy online, but the price is right... might be worth a try.
I can always hit up Ericles for some more of his 50 cal. military boxes, which don't hold as much swag, but are easier to place, being narrower.
