Special ammo, like that NM, was packed in 20 round boxes; the shooters had to load their own clips (5 or 8 round). In the 1950's we also got ball ammo in boxes for training and the troops who were not on the line loaded clips.
Nah, All the M-72 (Match '06) came in the clips for my Sniper Schools. The only 20 round box M-72 that we had was that that was issued by the Air Force to the Air Guard guys who used matched out M1s.
