Can anyone point me to some storage boxes for 12g ammo? Can't seem to find much online. tired of keeping them in the factory cardboard box that falls apart.

Agreed. The only MTM boxes I don't like are the 20rd ones, with the slip cover. They're narrow so fall over far too easily, and if you pick them up by the cover the bottom falls out dumping your ammo. These - https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/183000403463

But they're useful if you leave the lids off and tape two of the bottoms together in a 40rd block.

Had the same thing happen bladeracer, I have one (only one!) which dumped 20 rounds of 6.5 Jap into the bottom of the canoe when I carelessly picked it up, so now it sits in the ammo locker holding misfires waiting to have the bullets pulled. A friend who only shoots shotgun has one of their 100 round waterproof Dry Boxes for storage which he likes.

I don't take these ammo storage boxes hunting. I prefer these for field use https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/175060421782

But I also have a variety of soft wallet-style pouches that hold individual rounds securely out of sight and weather.

I use these for both 12 and 20G cartridges. They don't fall out. I can see how many are in there
