Blue "Drill" or "Practice" paint


Well-Known Member
Inert Drill or Practice ordnance is by convention painted a bluish/turquoise/teal colour. Does anyone know the proper name for this colour, and have a reference for it, either as a US FS595 number, a UK BSC number, or a RAL number?
I have an official released document showing
Practice rounds ---Deep Saxe Blue no113
Drill rounds--- Oxford Blue No105
this is for nato standardised colour codes post 1964
