Plano Handgun Hinged-Top 100 Round Ammo Boxes
Ammo boxes seem very durable and well built. Well worth the extra couple bucks to get the Plano brand name over the cheaper boxes. They stack very nice and secure with the grooves on the top and bottom of the boxes. I throw the boxes away that the new ammo comes in and put the rounds in these boxes. Definitely recommend.

I use these for my 9mm handloads. They do what I need them to do. They will hold up well if treated reasonably. They will crack if you toss them around hard surfaces or drop them from a distance. The lid is more prone to cracking than the bottom section. Be advised that 9mm rounds will wobble around if you put them in these boxes bullet down. However I put my rounds into the boxes with the primer end down and they are pretty secure that way. So if you have multiple loads you identify by headstamp or primer color, that may be a problem for you. Or do like i do and use colored permanent markers to mark the ends of various loads when storing more than one load configuration in the same box. Overall I could not improve upon these much. I like them, and I will buy more.

Plano Bullet Box .45
Well made ammo box as are all Plano products that I've purchased. Will be buying more of these the next time I place an order -- but for a different caliber. The .45 box has to be a bit larger due to the size of a .45 bullet but it is very easy to store and retrieve bullets from this box. I like the double closure tabs too as it assures the box won't come open accidently.

You could d better
While this is not a bad box, I do have a few issues with it. I am not a fan of the double-tabbed latch. The biggest issue, though, is the way it handles .380 ammo. 9mm works great. .380 will come out of the compartments, and then floats freely in the box. I cannot back this up, but the plastic feels a bit more brittle than some other ammo boxes I have used.
