223 ammo boxes

I need about 15 ea. 100 rd boxes and 20 ea. 50 rd. boxes for .223.
I load Blitzking bullets so overall length is 2.30" which is too long for some boxes.
Any suggestions?

Just dropped in a .223 into my .308 box and took a pic. If all else fails at least this will work.

I use the MCN 100 round 223 boxes. I load the 80 gr SMK longer than mag length for long range (600 yard) for use in my service rifle. These are loaded one at a time in the rifle through the ejection port. The bullets are seated some place around .010 to .015 off the lands. If your loading longer than these, something is up.
God Bless our Troops especially our Snipers.
