Never seen this before but I have not bought much commercial ammunition in a long time. The boxes is made so you can separate it and have 2 ten round boxes of ammo.

Thatís cool. The last couple of Hornady boxes Iíve bought havenít been like that. I do really like how Weatherby has their ammo in the boxes now, with the 4 separate holders of 5 cartridges each. Very handy in the field.

That's nice. I like it. Weatherby factory ammo can be broken into 5 round clips which I like a lot. Works really well when I reload and have different loads that I'm testing.

+1  Yup, I like it a lot, you can just put one in your pocket, and the rest in the backpack.

Neat wat Hornady is doing.

Is this for your recent big bore? I have not seen this either.
You can use those weatherby ammo holders for the 6.5-300 with .338 Win mags and .375 Ruger ammo. I may have tried.

I don't need extra cartridges when Iím hunting óóó said no hunter ever. Being able to separate the ammo and still have it contained is a great thing.

That's a helluva good idea. I hope other ammo companies follow suit. It's a wonder why some very simple good ideas take forever to show up. It took car companies at least 75 years to figure out a way to keep people from getting dead batteries from leaving the headlights on. (Why headlights were wired to stay on with the ignition off/keys out was always a mystery to me anyway)
Come and take it.

Those 5 round clips after you break them apart can also be used as a fire starter once the ammo is gone of coarse.  Norma also has the same thing with their ammo, kind of cool that you can get a fire going with ease back at the camp or if you lose your way going back.
