 There are still places that allow Ammo cans but for the
most part, I  think SLAGA members tend to ignore them
because of the questions on where they  are allowed and
where they aren't allowed.

 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. 
  Welcome to the area.  If you haven't found the SLAGA (St.
Louis Area Geocachers Association) web page yet, you can
