I have a book from the Watchdog on making repro civil war rounds. In there is a chart on federal ammunition and to packaging colors and box colors. I did an online search, but didnt find an answer to my question.
The question is, in the chart it specifies that .69 Caliber round ball boxes are to be blue, and that buckshot are to be red. This is according to the ordinance manual. Did this practice take place, or were the boxes made like the others in the standard olive color, or plain wood?
