    A lot of the ammo in those photos is decidedly NOT WWII vintage. I spotted a Glaser Safety Slug, what looked like something loaded with a Barnes DPX copper hollow point, what appeared to be a .22TCM, and what looks like Federal EFMJ. The blue plastic cased one was definitely not WWII vintage, either.

    I think the implication was that all the photos were shot in an old WWII bunker, not that the ammo was all from WWII.

    Yep. That bunker line confused me for a while when I saw the ammo. It's probably where he keeps his belt sander and camera tripod.

    At Camp Perry one year I picked up handfuls of that blue ammo projectiles. Most were solid blue but some had the red tip. Now I see there was a spotter charge inside. All mine had a simple cavity where I guess the charge flashed and blew out the rear.

    Well pretty much any house in Switzerland built after WW2 has a bunker/bomb shelter in it.
