Another way to store cylinders....

Pouches are more elegant, but not as protective. Some foam padding in the bottom may be useful for the smaller Single Six cylinders. The "safety" disk that came with your revolver finally has a use: mark both sides, then indicate the actual cylinder in the container by picking a side to display.






The container model number:

Scorpion8 is an unknown quantity at this point
Great idea! But I normally just store mine in the hard case with the gun it goes with.

I went to the local pharmacy and talked them out of a couple of short fat prescription bottles. I used my label maker to label them. Very similar to the OP's setup. Works great.

You would need the little dessicant pack too.

I forgot to show that I drop one of these VCI tabs in the bottom of the container:

Space cylinders make excellent pen/pencil holders!

Nice but not good in a non climate controlled situation.

That shouldn't really be a problem. Much of the air in the container is displaced by the cylinder itself, and the container is air tight. Clean and oil the cylinder, and throw in a VCI chip (link is above). Add a little desiccant pack for extra measure if you wish:

Seems that website shows you have to buy a box of 450. With I had that many Ruger convertibles
Where did you order a reasonable amount of them?

temperature changes tend to want to wring out moisture in the captured air. Not only that but any humidity in the air could get into those containers, even though they seem to be air tight.

I recently SAW on one of my meds bottles that it said DO NOT STORE IN BATHROOM. That sort of suggests the fact that those little bottles aren't air tight!!

A little dessicant is effective protection, at a pretty nominal price.
