we just got this in,
Talking to the guy who inspected it, they realized the battle packing ammo in humid conditions wasn't a bright idea, so in 1999 they started putting it in cases, with a black tarp like covering that wasn't air tight. We didn't buy much of it but what we got was REALLY nice. THE CASE PRICE was supposed to be $5.95 a box, and it was going to be $6.25 a box for less than a case. But I guess some wires got crossed.
We have a weeks supply of grade 2, about 15 cases of battle packed grade 1, and about two skids of the boxed grade 1.
