A reusable box of solid construction designed to accommodate and protect ammunition during storage, handling and/or shipment. It usually consists of two rectangular or square face sections, mounted on the bottom section. The lid may be mounted on a side or front section or may be attached to one side or front section by hinges, springs or the like; it may have one or more plain, durable locking devices to accommodate lead seals. Instead of a hinged lid, one or both side sections or front sections may be detachable. For increased stability and/or stacking capability, the item may be equipped with carrying facilities. For containers specifically designed for special items see container, shipping and storage (as modified). Excludes crate, shipping and storage, ammunition.
