I shot a bunch of the copper washed Chinese 308 back in the day, but it wasent packed in commercial style boxes like that. Iirc it was on clips and paper wrapped or in small brown 20rd boxes.
It was also corrosive as hell and barely accurate enough to keep on paper at 200yds.

In fact up untill my most recent move, I kept a barrel off a polytech m14 I bought that was used with same said ammo and stored without cleaning. It was so crusty and badly pitted right through the chrome that light could barely be seen through it. Op rod, piston, everything but the reciever was junk, but I got it dirt cheap and it built into a fine rifle..
