We used the 20mm cans to store larger items (including fluids) and the other cans for small stuff on the ships quite often. They stack well, are waterproof, have handles, and were plentiful and free (I worked on the Phalanx CIWS (20mm) at the time and was buddies with the Gunners Mates so I could get the smaller cans whenever I wanted).
I always wanted a 25mm can but we didn't shoot that gun too much so there weren't any empty cans that weren't spoken for. They're probably too big to use in a vehicle but you might want to look into one in case it's what you're looking for.
They're all metal so you could conceivably drill some mounting holes and use rubber grommets or something to maintain the seal.
Check a army surplus store or the internet, you shouldn't have any problem getting some.
