Default Storing ammo in clips

Do you guys store your garand ammo on clips? Looking to start reloading a bunch of 30-06 and was thinking about storing it in en bloc clips. Is it bad for the clips?

I started doing this, but after a while, I got tired of pulling it back out to single load at the range. It all depends on how you are going to shoot.

Just sayin...

No problem at all. It won't hurt the en blocs.

If you think about it, military ammo came from the factory on clips and was stored like that for years. I keep a 10-pouch GI ammo belt filled, along with all the other stuff; canteens, bayonet etc. ready for the very unlikely possibility of things getting out of control.

Unless its in the factory box. (Or it is pistol or shotgun ammo) It is stored clipped.

That goes for all my 30.06, 7.62 Nato, 5.56 Nato, and 30 Carbine.

Makes it easy to load the mags on the others.

Agree, store in clips. Only possible exception would be the soft ,Austrian made clips that may get stretched. These have a hole the back where the manufactures code is stamped on other clips. These are junk!

The clips from the Greek spam (1970s) can I opened a few years ago were all just fine. All my reloads are straight into those clips/bandoleers.

I agree, I opened 10 of those cans for the ammo, many of the enblocs I have used with no issues, also sold many here with no complaints.
