If you have a touch of O.C.D. like I do, you like to keep a clean shop, but your notes in well-organized binders, and you also feel compelled to have neat-and-tidy ammo box labels for your hand-loaded ammo.
The tiny labels that come with jacketed bullets (in the box of bullets) are OK if you can write in 4 point sized letters, but for the rest of us, more space is needed. I decided to create labels on my PC using Avery 2″ x 4″ sticky back labels (I have some Avery 8163 labels, many more options in this size are available).
After a few variants, I have settled on the following format:
So far, these are working well for me. If you want to print your own, I’ve included a ZIP file attachment with PDF files for the following:
- Generic (caliber not on label)
- 38 Special
- 357 Magnum
- 44 Magnum
- 9mm Luger
- 45 ACP
- 40 S&W
- .226 / 5.56
- 308 Winchester
Have fun! Have suggestions for changes? Please comment on this post!
