    I know there are "special" cans made to be buried, seems kind of excessive but kind of cool. Anyone bury ammo, money, supplies, etc.? If so, why? Why should I?

    Because if you don't, drawing a treasure map with 'X' marks the spot won't be much fun.

    Food saver vacuum pack items inside the ammo can first is a nice extra step i'd imagine.

    Using a ton of plastic coating on the cans also protects them and makes them water proof.

    Why? Well I know people that have buried things in home made PVC canisters because they are, or were, law abiding people caught up in a state where the line of legality eclipsed their constitutional God given rights.

    I have lots of them buried.

    Harbor Freight plastic cans. I make an O-ring type seal using caulk, fill them and bury them.

    Ammo, cash, whatever.
