In adventures across the globe, hunters and shooters have leaned on Plano’s venerable 1312, 1712, and 1612 Field/Ammo boxes for a decade. The low-cost, molded-plastic ammo cans are durable, won’t rust, and provide a practical and economical means of storing and transporting ammunition. And if the full story is to be told, the blue-collar versatility and low cost has made them a favorite vessel for all manner of shooting accessories… along with just about any other small items one could imagine.

New for 2016, Plano announces the addition of the 1812 Magnum Field/Ammo Box to its honest and hard-working line of Ammo Cans.

Forty-percent larger than Plano’s Model 1612 Big .50 Cal. Can—previously the largest available—the new, amply-sized 1812 Magnum Can comes with two removable dividers that section out three equally-sized, cavernous compartments—super handy for separating rounds of different calibers or sizes. A removable, drop-in storage tray rides beneath the lid and over the can’s main compartment for fast access to tools and accessories. Finally, a latched, quick-access storage compartment is molded right into the can’s lid for immediate access to remaining small items and sundries.

As with all Plano Field/Ammo Boxes, the 1812 Magnum is dressed with stout, no-nonsense hardware. A brass bail latch secures the goods without fail, while a heavy-duty molded handle holds up to the weight generated by heaps of magnum rounds.

  1. They are not waterproof, barely water resistant. For less than $25 You can find many plastic tool boxes that that will serve the purpose.

  2. At super senior age I can hardly lift a 50 cal can full of any calibre, let alone this Plano 1812 monster. It would be limited to accessory status I’m sure.

  3. Are these cans waterproof or just water resistant? Meaning, if they were buried, would moisture or water seep in??
