I just picked some off the ground and thought it was commercial. Thanks for the info!

Brian, very interesting, thanks!

Another contract loading for Saudi Arabia? This the they use 20 round boxes as apposed to the 25 round boxes in the contract loading described above. Per the can label this is 2019 production.
