I currently have two of the big cheese puff containers full of sorted 40 (WIN).  That is my go to case in 40 mainly because of the quantity I have.  My current container system includes the 1 gallon ice cream, dollar store, infant formula, yogurt, and the cheese puffs containers.  My problem lies in that I have them sorted by headstamp and some is clean and some isn't.  So it is all just a mess.  I need to streamline the process and tidy up the storage area a bit.

I don't like to wet tumble mixed caliber brass as inevitably you get the turducken of cases nested together that don't get clean/dry.  I think I will sort by caliber and store it in 5-gallon buckets mixed headstamp dirty.  Then implement the bucket rotation process to prevent the same brass from getting reloaded over and over.

Not sorting by headstamp is going to be the biggest improvement to eliminating the clutter.  I currently have so many containers of small quantity sorted brass.  I'm going to shoot through all my sorted brass and stop sorting by headstamp going forward.  The space savings alone will be huge, nevermind the savings in time sorting.

Cheers,
Toby

If it goes "boom" or "vroom" I'm intersted.

Costco nut jars for my polished and ready-to-go brass.  I have 4-5 per caliber since we eat a lot of nuts in my house.  Cardboard boxes or 5 gal bucket for the brass I need to sort and clean (whenever I get around to it).
