Would like to know when Fiocchi introduced the “silver” boxes and when they were replaced by the “picture of the cartridge on the top” style. I suspect that the new box types appeared ca 1995.
Looks like nthat the colored band on the box is blue if the box contains cartridges loaded with lead bullets, red if it contains semi jacketed bulets and red / yellow if it contains FMJ bullets. Am I right?
Another variation exists since I have seen a 45 HP “silver” box with a yellow band with black spots, and marked “practical shooting” on the top.
