After YEARS of shooting CCI .22 rimfire ammo, and accumulating 100's of empty 100 rnd boxes, both CCI long clear rectangles and square yellow Remington boxes............

Any body come up/find uses (whether ammo related or not) for these empties???  Been saving them for years now and haven't found uses (even though I'm usually pretty inventive with other product containers).  Would like suggestions.

THX, RETFED.

If you take out the lid and shell holders you can putt two magazines in one.  I have a half dozen in the bottom of the gunbox.   Then I’ve got a couple in there with earplugs, staples, small tools, batteries.  Then I’ve got a couple in the cleaning kit with different accessories, patches, whatever.  

And they are great for small parts, …

I’ve used them for small parts in my gun box. I screwed the lid to the top of the box to create sort of a long skinny drawer.  It worked well until I outgrew that box.

Currently I am using mine to hold the cmp Eley bulk ammo I bought a few years ago.  That ammo comes loose in plastic bags, 500 rounds to a box.  I Just load up 500 rounds at a time into those cci boxes and put the, on the shelf.  Works pretty well.

Be creative and you’ll find some uses around the house.

Looks recyclable to me ...

I've 'reloaded' these things, and transfered ammo to the MTM boxes. Decided it's a waste of my time.... and I've currently got nothing *BUT* time ...

The local range uses them to re-package bulk ammo for the jr .22 rifle shooting club.  Makes it easier for the management of ammo for the young shooters.

Inserts from the 50-round boxes make "solar cells" on the roof of my granddaughter's doll house.

Don't think so,Wes.  The plastic may be marked as "recyclable", but try doing it when you state "lead" was part of the original package contents.   pale

I agree with the statements that repackaging loose ammo is probably the best option for the boxes.

I use them at work as a quick "go box" of office supplies -- pen, highlighter, earphones, paperclips, etc. -- that I take to the courtroom for hearings.

Punch sets, small screwdrivers, hex keys of various sizes. My fathers old craftsman toolboxes have lots of yellow Remington boxes for springs, washers, rubber hose gaskets. In the old days, some kids probably used them for roach clips and attendant roaches lol

On eBay empty CCI boxes sell for up to a few dollars each (including shipping) in lots of six or more.

Damn. I guess I'll just keep using them as snack trays in the kids lunch boxes.
