If you have many ammo cans, you may want to go the DIY route:
- 100% silica Kitty Litter
- Cheap "anklet" nylon stockings

One cup of Kitty Litter into a stocking, tie a knot, toss into the can.

5 dollars shipped to your door...toss some on the bottom, and then toss some on top.

desiccants

Typically used in the packaging industry, desiccants are used to eliminate the harmful humidity that could potentially degrade or even destroy products that are sensitive to moisture. The most commonly used desiccants include:

•silica gel desiccants
•molecular sieve desiccants
•montmorillonite clay desiccants

Proper protection from moisture is important. To that end, combining our moisture barrier bags with a desiccant is one of the most efficient ways to protect your goods. No matter how effective a moisture barrier bag may be, there is always a possibility that a minute amount of moisture may seep in. The use of desiccants is a smart preventive measure for added protection.
