    If you realy want to know go to the following link U.S Military Metal Ammo Boxes
    It seems that it was manufactured near the end of WW2

    I have about 8 different ones I need to research, one is huge, sorry I haven't looked at them in a long time, but I do have a cannister that held a 8inch howitzer shell it was stamped 1947 I think, but then it is stamped packed in 1957, it stands up to about my waist & I am 6 foot tall. any way , did they stop using the 30 cal after Korea , or did they have them in early nam, I forgot? hey WW2HUNTER, does that have shell cannisters in it? plus I have a ammo box that takes 2 people to carry it, & I can't remember what it says, haven't looked at it in about 15 years, it's in great shape though. thanks for the link.
