They came in Eblocs

Even when I was running sniper schools using the M1C/Ds in the 70-80s we got match ammo in eblocs.

How ever, the Air Guard used M1s for competition, they got the same M-72 we used in boxes of 20.

There was a lot of ball issued in 5 round clips, but they were for the 1903/a3s that were used in WWII and Korea.

Even 7.62X51 came in 5 round clips. There was a charger that went over the M14 magazine or you could recharge your magazine while it was in the rifle via the M14s clip guide.
