    1.) Clean "Flip'top" can and spray with your (local area) earth tone paint. (Allow paint to dry for a week). Have a beer while waiting.
    2.) Insert pre-designed Anti-corrosion bag.
    3.) Open several 1,000 round cardboard packaged "CASES" of appropriate cartridges.
    4.) Fill anti-corrosion bag, shake gently, and close bag, gently close lid, have one beer.
    5.) While drinking beer, figure out the best place to store your new "Canned Goods". Cooler is better and drier is better, and fairly accessible is important. More then one storage area is strongly suggested for your new "Canned Goods".

    Many makers of anticorrosion bags.....here is one.........https://www.bluguardvci.com/anti-corrosion-bags

    Do it for the grandchildren........they will not like hearing, "Shut-up and Get into the Boxcar".

    Guns stored long term... in plastic bags...vacuum sealed or not...best to pad or cushion them ..particularly if they have sharp edges. It will, over time, pierce the plastic bags.

    Really ...any item stored long term in plastic bags with sharp edges...can, over time, pierce the plastic bags.

    Those are nice vacuum seal bags in the link.

    I wouldn't vacuum seal ammo.

    There's a risk the vacuum could cause the bullets to move deeper into the cases over time.

    As long as it's kept dry and at relatively stable temperatures there's no need for a vacuum.

    Silica gel packs to reduce moisture in with the boxed ammunition and sealed into old biscuit tins with tape over the juncture of the lid and tin to make a perfect seal. Then put the biscuit tins somewhere that has a stable temperature to avoid condensation inside the can and is dry so the outside of the can won't rust.

    Any value of using caulking to help seal the edge of the flip can? Doing some caulking this weekend for a completely different purposes, so this caused me to think out loud on this.

    I agree 100%.

    The referenced link does not suggest that ammo be stored in vacuum sealed bags. I double bag using only the suggested (vci) zip-lock style bag for ammo, and inside new high quality ammo cans.
