    yep they are Aussie, heres some 1916 mk vi I picked up recently. CAC is colonial ammunition company, they had a factory in Footscray and in new Zealand as well. The packet you have looks like the outer covering to the box I have.

    Rare item! I think it was the outer wrapping for 10 rounds of ball ammunition and would have been kept closed with a thin string.

    Hi 4md,
    Your carton would have held 20 rounds in 4 chargers originally. It was sealed with a length of black tape wrapped around the top and bottom with a label on the lid of the carton. unless the tape was removed carefully the label usually disappears......
    Cheers
