Does anyone have a recommendation for a box (or boxes) to store shotgun shells in the closet? It should hold up to 10 boxes/250 shells. Having more than one box to do the job is fine.

Bonus if I could take it to the SC course relatively easily and/or transport in golf cart.

The main concern at this point is keeping secure from a curious toddler. It doesn't need to lock per se, just snap closed reasonably securely. It will be behind other things, I just don't want to have loose cardboard shell boxes on the floor of the closet.

A few of these could work - but are there any better options?

I am not inclined to go full gun safe or remodel my closet.

Thanks,

Dan

Dan, I own quite a few of the MTM boxes in various gauges. Amazons price is way higher that what I paid and I don't think they went up that much, but who knows.
Check out these.

I like the Plano brand 12 x 18” plastic storage boxes. They have a tray in the top for cleaning stuff and room underneath for about 10 boxes of shells. they have a handle on the top, secure latch, yada yada. You can get the equivalent at Harbor freight for half the money, but they never seem to come in an outdoorsy color.

IMO it's hard to beat the old military 50 cal metal ammo containers. Those plus the .30 cal boxes are what I use for all of my ammo.

I will vote for the military ammo cans but I'd rather knock together a box with a lid just for that purpose.

These are good options, thank you. That MTM box may fit the bill at least temporarily because it is so cheap!

The MTM Ammo Crates come in various sizes.

Holds 10 boxes of 12 gauge: https://www.amazon.com/MTM-ACR4-18-Ammo-...B0XAZY7DZEF9EK0

Holds 20 boxes of 12 gauge: https://www.amazon.com/MTM-ACR5-72-Crate...B08FV24S6HXYZYV

I have 3 of the larger size for my rifle and pistol ammo and they work well. Being old and having no children or grandchildren around I just keep shotshells in their original flats - with 26 flats on hand I can't see spending the money for any other way of storing them.

Here you go, Dan. Save closet space. Leave it at the foot of the bed.

I figure it'll hold over 200 boxes of 2 3/4" twelve gauge.
