That explains the lack of ammo cans out here.  Boy thought ya'll had something 
against them.  They are the container of choice in VA followed by a good 
lock-n-lock.  As long as the ammo can has no military markings on it, they can 
be used.

Also, even if ammo cans were not forbidden, most of the areas where I placed my 
caches do not support a container that large.

Ammo cans are wonderful but are forbidden in the St. Louis County Parks.  They 
are a "no no" and can't be used.  Neither can PVC pipe.  I've done most of the 
caches along the Merricac and honestly don't remember what containers they were 
but I'd guess they are "Tupperware" like for the most part.
