IMR Plastic Bottle Lot #s

I don't usually bother much with lot numbers but got interested and started checking my powder containers (IMR 4350 and 4064).

On the old metal can IMR powders the lot # is clearly stamped on the can but I cannot find it on the new plastic bottles. Is it there and where should I look?

    I can't find it on either the steel or the plastic. But here in Canada they put a big sticker on the back that covers all of the US Cautions and has our own so I do not knnow what is under it. Sorry I can't help.

    there should be a orange sticker on the bottom. I am pretty sure it is like the ones on hodgdon bottles.

    Two out of three IMR bottles have the orange sticker and the bottle of Hodgdens has an orange sticker. The lot numbering system seems to be different than on the metal cans.

    Thanks, mystery solved (except for the one missing sticker)

    When hodgdon bought IMR they seem to have changed alot of things to their way of doing it.

    they are orange stickers

    the first digit is a 1 or 8 = size of bottle or jug

    next 6 = date bottled

    last 4 = lot

    make sure the whole number is same if you want the same powder (except the first 1 or 8)

    8lb jug
    bottled oct 27, 2003
    lot 4156
