For those that use the vials, what kind of container are you using to keep those in? I have a shell holder and plan on using that hunting. I also have an old tackle box that I keep my muzzleloader supplies in but would like to consolidate and downsize. I looked at Pittman's website and they show a 50 round box with the vials but I can't decide if I should use a 20 gauge box or 12 gauge box.

this is the box that has caught my eye. Mainly will be used for range days and possibly kept in the truck during hunting days in case I need to stock up on reload.

I use those same vials up to 110gr of smokeless powder. Over that and I use a larger vial. The 20ga box holds the perfectly. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/15644 ... nd-plastic

For hunting, I use rifle brass. The 300 Win Mag will hold more than 75gr of smokeless powder and the opening is small enough that I don't need a funnel to avoid spilling during loading. You can get white rubber caps to cap the brass in the shelving area of Home Depot or use vacuum caps from the auto parts store.

Now that is good info. I kept my powder and a sabot in one of the plastic vials....when I went to reload after a miss, the powder had gotten around the sabot a bit and it was stuck...it finally came out and I got loaded, but it cost me a very good 2nd chance on a nice buck that just stood with the hot doe. I now carry seperate ky.

I also wrap about two inches of black electrical tape around every hunting vial. I religiously put that tape over the end of my barrel to remind me that it is loaded. It only takes a few seconds.

I finally got the shotgun box above. Didn’t realize at the time it was a shotgun box. I also ordered 100 of the twist top vials. Thinking they were under $10. Took almost a month to get them from China

If you are looking for something small try the shotgun choke tube carrier, they hold 5 small enuff keep in pocket plus keep them dry.
