I just added this box to my collection today. I knew it was an older style, but when I looked at the headstamp of the cartridges inside, I was very surprised. The headstamp on each FMJ cartridge is “VPT 69”. The patina on the cartridges matches the apparent age of the box, so I do not suspect that the original contents have been replaced. Additionally, this is one of two identical boxes. This seems to be a commercial box, but the contents appear to be of a military nature; ie. FMJ ball with military style headstamp. The first thought was that it is simply surplus ammunition replacked for commercial sale, but I have always heard that the Finns were not known for surplussing ammunition. Second, the side of the box says “WARNING KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN”. I remember reading here somewhere that the addition of this statement on ammunition boxes in or for the US places the box at a certain date or later, but I do not remember what this date was. The most confusing thing to me is that to my knowledge, there was little or no demand for this caliber in the US until the mid 1980’s, which is much later than when this box appears to have been made. Could this ammunition have been imported in the early 1970’s for the few war trophy SKS and AK-47s that came out of the Vietnam War?
