    After pheasant hunting at the farm, I brought back home some of those blue 30 plastic barrels the gang gets their Grazon P+D weed killer in. They had about 30 of them, and if thigs work out below, I'll get more.

    I brought back 3 (all that would fit in the back of the Silverado with other stuff).

    I have need for more, but want to store all my once-fired old style AA hulls, new AA HS hulls (ick), Nitros and Federal papers in these and seal them up.

    I've been looking all over the Internet for sealable (tight) plastic lids, but can't seem to find any that fit tightly. ULine sells the barrels AND good lids, but they don't sell the lids separately.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Are the lids black plastic,and has the clasp ring to close the lid to drum? i've seen these on 20gal. drums, but not 30gal.

    Call Forrest "Woody" Johnson, He was a WTA officer for years, has a barrel business just outside of Oshkosh where 26 turns off. I used to see all kinds of barrels stacked for years, and in later years plastic ones.

    Maybe some Wis. guys have info for you.

    Dave M: That's the point, I NEED lids, it never had lids, just more blue molded cover.

    I'll try to get hold of the WI guy.

    Thanks for the info HM.

    Woody has been dearly departed for quite sometime now, but I am sure he got a chuckle out of this one....
