Details

Silica Gel Desiccant packets are ideal for ammo storage helping to protect your investment!

If you are buying ammo with the intent of storing it for a while, then there are a few major things to consider to ensure it's longevity:

  • Avoid excessive, prolonged heat
  • Avoid excessive, prolonged cold
  • Keep it cool
  • Avoid wild temperature swings
  • Most importantly, **Keep It Dry**


For longer term storage, it is recommended that you store your ammunition in ammo cans with a rubber seal. The Military learned this a long time ago, which is why they started making ammo cans. For additional longevity, insert a moisture pack (desiccant) inside of the ammo can which will help keep humidity away from your prized ammo. Also, every time you open and close your ammo can, it is probably a good idea to switch out the silica gel packet as new moisture will enter the can.

5 gram packets are designed to cover 648 cubic inches of contained air space (enough for one 50 Cal M2A1 ammo can).

Q: Clarification please -- is it 648 cubic inches for each 5 gram packet?

Posted On: 8/13/13 By: Chuck

A: Yes, each 5 gram packet will be suitable for use in containers approximately 648 cubic inches. For maximum results, I will usually start out with 5 grams for every 300 cu. in. (approximately double) in order to eliminate any initial excessive moisture, then back off to the factory specifications for longer term storage. Recharging these packets may be possible, however they are not designed for this task. Desiccant packs of a Tyvek like packaging usually indicate they may be recharged. Each recharge will weaken the strength of their effectiveness and eventually need to be replaced.

Nothing Like Keeping Your Ammo Dry Review by FastEddie

I purchased ten 5 gram Silica Gel Desiccant, each with 10 packets. They were delivered quickly and not one of the packets has been harmed during shipment and delivery. They were all in perfect condition. I put them right to work placing two 5 gram bags per 50 Cal M2A1 Green Ammo cans. I sealed the Ammo Cans knowing the Silica Gel packets will absorb any moisture that gets in the Ammo Can, which is highly unlikely. (Posted on 1/18/14)

Disappointed Review by Steve

I purchased two packages of 10-packets, which just arrived today. In one package, the bottom of the package was full of silica beads. I opened the package and half the packets were split open with their contents spilling out. They weren't open by being cut or torn, rather the desiccant packs look worn and the material thin from use. Basically, they looked used. The other package has a number of loose beads at the bottom of the package, but I haven't opened it yet. I was hoping to save it for later use. But I suspect the desiccant packs will be in a similar (used) condition. I will not buy these again. (Posted on 11/2/12)
