Default So Riddle me Why .... Spanish, or French?

Everything you pick up these days has Spanish-language instructions on it, Spanish-language ingredients, Spanish-language comments.....except firearms ammunition. It has secondary info on it in French. French!?!? Remington ammo has info in French, as cartouches for cartridges.

Any ideas why, in this day and age? French is a dying language among many dying languages. And the French aren't a huge market for ammunition, since it's not used in retreating from anything.

Anybody shed some light on this conundrum?
