Just wondering what everyone uses to hold their 209 caps, i have been lugging them around in the box they came in but need something a little smaller and maybe waterproof. Was thinking a pill case, can these caps be put in a container together like that?

I keep/store my 209 primers in their original package in my muzzleloader dry box, and use the original pack while shooting at the range.

 

For hunting I use the T/C primer caddy, which includes a square soft red rubber holder that holds nine 209 primers and can be tossed in a pocket, as well as a three primer red rubber holder with bead chain that allows you to hang it off a zipper pull on your coat for fast access. The primer faces are exposed to the weather, same as they'd be in a shotgun shell in a shell belt, but I don't generally carry the ML when it is torrential rain. The soft rubber holds the primers securely, but they pop out easily. I really like these for carrying a few extra primers in the field in case a follow up shot is required. 

 

They are/were pretty inexpensive. I picked up 2 packs for $3.99/ea from Londero Sports when I was buying my ML accessories. I've seen them advertised at Cabelas too.

Years ago I was working in a recycling plant and a box of discolored plastic bottles (not expanded) came in. I asked if I could get a few. I got a milk crate full with discolored plastic caps. I store em in there as it's water tight and sealed so I can see if anyone has played with it

Primers should only be stored in their original packaging.  

 

Primers should never be handled, used, or stored in bulk, since primers in bulk can explode simultaneously. The placing of primers in tubes or columns, or using other bulk systems in which the explosion of any one primer may cause the explosion of all others, is a potentially hazardous condition.

I use the T/C Primer caddy as well, better than listening to primers rattling in the original box when moving.

I was carrying my 209 primers in a pill bottle ,but found they made a bit of noise as i walked back to my stand .So when i came back from todays hunt , i dug through the odds and ends on my workbench and found a long strip of rubber .Figured out the right sized drill bit and drilled a row of hole down the piece of rubber .The primers fit in tight enough to hold ,but easy enough to push out from the back side (what can i say , i like to do things myself, but mostly i'm cheap :)
