CMP had some .410 surplus for sale. Think they have a picture on their site.

Only time we had any it was handed over from the prior unit. So not sure.

GI 12 gage ammo is packed in 10 rd boxes that are in a waterproof packaging, 160 rds in a GI .50 cal size ammo can. At least that is how is was up into the mid-1990's. Waterproof packaging used to be kraft color then it transitioned to white.

Thanks from XXIV Corps

I got two Five round boxes like civilian gets packed, brown cardboard, end marked "Mil. 12 Guage OO Buckshot" front says 12guage Military 00 buckshot, Olin Corp.

The shells are 2.75 inch Dark forest green with the brass part blackened.

They are sealed even in the front crimp in a way to prevent water from entering the round itself.
