    Wow. I wonder why the caliber is omitted?

    Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
  2. As far as the military was concerned, they covered that when they identified the ammunition as "M-2"

    That was all the identification that they needed.

    Much like today when troops require ammunition for their M-4 rifles, the ammunition will simply be marked on it's boxes as "M-855", "M-193", "M-856" etc., with only the manufacturer initials and year on the casing.

    Think WCC-04, LC-08, and such.

    Those numbers tell all the story that the need to know.

    I guess that the military knows what it is doing in this regard.

    You would be hard pressed to shove 240G ammo into your M4 mags.
