I guess I’m about “off to a good start”, times two. Nope I don’t have a precise round count.

Rule #1: Don't EVER ask what's in the red can!  rofl2 rofl2

Phosphorus32 the red can is the ammo can.  I take to the range.   It is bright red and on the sides in white letteres that say "AMMO" so I won't forget it.

The old red range rifle rounds receptacle trick, eh?

Don't feel bad.
I hade a 1919 (semi) once upon a time. First time I was taking out, 3 or 4 guys showed up at the house early to load belts and stow them into cans.
Got to the spot, set up the tripod, and everybody got to play with it and get familiar. When the time cat to load it up and play, I remembered that both cans were sitting right next to the front door.
I put them there so I wouldn't forget them......

I have a friend who came up from Thetford Vt
Which is a 2 hr drive from my house.  We decided to go to the range while he was here.  We loaded up and got to the range and low and behold the range can was still at my house.  Now I got smart.
The can gets loaded and put into the vehicle first.

I use empty cat litter buckets.
"Is that actually a bucket of cat litter or is it 7.62 Nato?" - My better half.
