Ammunition boxes, or ammo boxes, were used for storage purposes during many wars. Designed with durability, safety, and efficiency in mind, these crates held cartridges for a variety of weapons. Commonly made of steel, these items carry the weight of military history within them and were used for storing other items when the ammunition was in use.
