Creating New Old Ammo Boxes

Post by 1913Model8 »

Hi Everyone, I am thinking about creating a run of new old style ammo boxes. Example here I have Remington Kleanbore 170 soft point next to me. I think it would be cool to put reloaded ammo in these and use them or display them. I also have an old crate of Remington 30-06 Kleanbore but of course no boxes or ammo in the crate. So if anyone would be interested in this let me know. I have a quote from a place that actually makes this type of stuff. I might attempt to make a few by hand here just to see how they turn out.
I have a 30 Remington that I would like to make these boxes for. If you are interested I need a list of ammo sizes and how many boxes.

Unfortunately not enough people interested to lower the cost down enough. 15 tools was till 200 plus from what I remember here. I was hoping to do more like a run of 35 tools which would help a lot on lowering cost. 100 tools and we would be at the 150ish per tool. I think I posted the cost in another area on here a few months ago.

Hi Guys, Update here I know it has been a while since any info or activity on this project. I did get some help from a great guy with a little knowledge in turning. He made this prototype roughly. In short, the tool works perfectly! The guide in the barrel is an absolute must for keeping this together in both disassembly and assembly, probably more importantly assembly. Attached are pictures of the prototype in metals. We will be working together about seeing what he can do to make X amount of them and what materials will cost and also what materials he can actually machine as well. Keep a look out for more to come soon.
