Traveling Dubbing Box (Ammo Box)

Postby letumgo » Sun Nov 20, 2016 7:23 pm

I found this cool ammo box at Cabelas last week ($4 bucks). Normally, this would be used to hold rounds of ammo (.40 S&W/ 10mm/.45 ACP). When I saw it I though it would make a great dubbing box for a traveling tying kit. Sure enough! Each of the openings holds between 1/3 and 1/2 of a pack of dubbing. One hundred dubbing choices all in a convenient box (5.5" X 6.0" X 1.5").

Very nice find Ray!
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

Nice!! Ray are you going to drill holes like the commercial boxes? I have drilled out many Plano Boxes for my dubbing and stands. ;)

Bill - Ooo... Really nice vertical dubbing box holders. I like those.

To answer your question, no, I do not plan on drilling holes in the ammo box. When the box is open, I have access to all of the dubbing and can just pinch colors as I need them. The lid of the box fits nice and tight, making the less susceptible to critters. An extra bit of protection for a travel box.

It's all in the eye of the beholder, Ray. I've got about 20 of those same boxes, never thought to put dubbing in them. Mine are full of .45ACP ammo. Go figure.

Very nifty Ray! I assume they are all the same series of dubbings? No, they can't be! I thought I was the only guy who owned a go-zillion different dubbings! Yours look fantastic Ray and so compact! Great find indeed! I will put this on my ongoing Cabela's list!
