[Civil War] Ammunition packing boxes

Does anyone know the color schemes for marking odd caliber packing boxes? I have the color scheme for the US weapons, ie olive for .58 elongated ball, light blue for .69 round ball, etc. but what about the odd ones? What about .54 cal for the Lorenz? What about .7o caliber for the tubelock? What about .71 cal for the french 42? What about .72 cal. prussian? How about .61 for the 59 french rifle? Also, for the ammo that came for the enfield, how was that box painted and marked?
