John, its to identify the round, box is also marked with coloured marker rectangle for example red rectangle Carbine ammo, it varied for Rifle, Gatling, Snider , revolver and blank, then the paper packet is marked , then the bullet, these are from my collection,

Colour coding
White Rifle round, (although early model Mk3 carbine where white)
Red Carbine (post 1881)
Orange Cordite (post 1893)
Green Tracer used for anti-zeppelin work

Victorians were not allowed to be colour blind.
