Frankford Aresenal boxes

Has anyone had any experience with the Frankford Aresenal plastic ammo boxes that Midway has for $7.xx for 10?

They work great and are real cheap sold by the case. I bought 3 cases to use .32ACP, .38/.357, and .308Win in about 2 years ago....................I've only used about the top 4 boxes in each of those cases and not a single box has failed yet.

Two thumbs up - ESPECIALLY if you can catch them on sale at MidwayUSA.

I just placed my order and got some of those. I got a case of red for .357 magnum and a case of blue for .38 special to keep them seperated. They are $7.29 a case.

I have several sizes that I bought when they were still labeled Midway.
No problems, no issues, they all work fine.
I once knocked one full of .45 ACP 230 gr hardball loads off the table at my local range. It didn't spill any rounds but did crack on one corner. This is user abuse and no fault of Midway. The lid still latches fine and the box is still perfectly useable.
