I think it was in the 60's when SAAMI agreed that all 20 gauge shells should be yellow to prevent 12/20 and less common 20/28 bursts. However, this agreement is for American-made shells only. While many European makers do make them yellow for sale in the North American market I have seen 20 gauge shells outside of the U.S. that weren't yellow.
