I hate vendors for trying to make money on the back end when they are making plenty up front on that $13.95 price.
After twenty years in Alaska, you would think that I would get used to the high price of shipping. Then another company comes along and gouges you even more.
I ordered a part for my 22 from a company in SoCal. 12.99 for the part, 21.00 for shipping. I called and asked them to put it in a plain envelope and ship it USPS. They told me they only shipped UPS. You can geuss where I told them to stick thier shipping.
I just checked USPS priority mail one ammo can possibly two can be shipped for $14.65 TO ALASKA
The cheapest UPS will do it is 61.80 TO ALASKA
For those that are interested a 50 cal ammo can EMPTY weighs lbs. The dimensions are 12x6x7 (for shipping purposes).
As I said by the time I shipped them to someone they would be over a $20 bill a piece. Now you know.
ok to keep the thread going I got another e-mail from cheaper than dirt they have cans brand new for less than $18.00 a can not including shipping 12 cans for $199.97

little spendy of me
dad picked up a nice can for me last week at a garage sale in great shape too
ebay. Eight 50 cal. ammo cans delivered for $90.00. That was $64.00 plus $26.25 of calculated (?) shipping (USPS) from Talladega Alabama to Michigan. It was heavy box too. Sometimes, you have to go ebay.
ok in a effort to keep the thread alive and to provide all the options available for comparision
cope's just sent out a e-mail and posted above they have brand new never used 50 cal ammo cans for $14,99 a can and $ 9.99 shipping so if you need cans its best to get more than one or two
