This is an excellent deal. If had any spare bucks, I'd get some, but the next best thing is to draw you Irregulars' attention to it. My suggestion would be to take the strippers out of the Polish spam cans and pack them away in USGI M19A1 "thirty cal" cans and bandoleers. If you can find them, I like the Brit 5-pocket 5.56 NATO bandoleers for 7.62x54R on strippers which is what I put some of Hannah's ammo for her M44 in. Each pocket holds two clips, fifty rounds per bando and 4 bandos or 200 rounds per M19A1 can. If you order two spam cans from AIM they'll ship them in the same wooden crate the Pole's put them in. Then you can put two M19A1 cans back in the same crate, nesting side by side, for 400 rounds of ready-to-go combat ammo that can still be manhandled around easily if you have to displace your stash.
