    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.
