Contents are easy to see, containers are stackable, still light enough to pick up even if filled with bullets.
I put my cast bullets into costco cashew & almond plastic containers and the metal costco peanut tins.

I love those things for keeping brass.
It's funny what we reloaders wind up using to hold brass, bullets, tumbling media, etc. I have a lot of Akro bins too, but I use all kinds of other things. The big animal cracker barrels are also good.

I use the Holiday pop corn cans at Wal-Mart for my tumbling media. Along with the metal Priouline cream filled wafer cans for various stuff.

Reloaded a about 25 round of 9mm hornady 124gr xtp and then about 50 round of 9mm speer gold dot. I was interesting to compare the rounds and their differences. The hornady was set deeper and speer much shallower thus longer overall length.

I made about 50 soft lead Lee 255 LFN bullets for use in Pyroex loads and made about 200 .454 bullets for my 1858 Remy. The .454 bullets were made with an RCBS 2 hole steel mold from long ago. I just can't let it go and get a six cavity Lee from Track of the Wolf. It sure would be less work if I did though.
