Ammo Labeling

Nothing earthshaking, just marketing...
My last purchases of CCI Standard Velocity and MiniMag, I notice they have red bands on the box "Target". Several other variants do, too; but strangely, the Green Tag, Pistol Match, and Select don't. I guess they figure that if you are paying $14+ a box, you know what it is for.

Yes it would appear.

That the marketing people are clever. But sometimes not so much. I like the .45 acp that comes labeled as "subsonic".

That’s so they can charge $5 more per box......... Because it is special “sub-sonic” loadings.........

And yes, I already know what the average FPS is on most factory loadings of .45 ACP, and what the speed the sound barrier is in FPS.
