Abstract : The invention is an adjustable, open-box style tray assembly to hold ammunition boxes of varying sizes while providing easy access to the boxes. The assembly has a bulkhead therein which can be fastened at various positions so as to adapt the assembly to different box sizes. The variable length and position of a strap attached to the assembly further accommodate differences in box sizes. A modification of the invention is a tray assembly having one tray half slidably in another tray half so that the assembly's length can be changed. A telescoping bulkhead attaches to the tray halves and is repositionable transversely to the slide direction of the tray halves, thereby accommodating boxes of various widths. Also, hooks on the retaining strap for the box engage the tray halves to prevent the relative movement of the tray halves.
