Nosler bullet lot number

Can anyone tell me which of the two numbers on a nosler box sticker is the lot number?

Anyone have a break-out of what the number means, as in month/year or something?

Re: Nosler bullet lot number


I tried researching it an didn't do so hot.

If enough fellas would chime in maybe we could figure it out.

Here's a number from some I bought this week. GH19F 9 1.

Let's assume the 9 1 means Sept 1? and see what happens.

The 114113271327 is a bit of a code to try to break.

Re: Nosler bullet lot number

OK, I just got off the phone with nosler. Someone screwed up when they ran my stickers. Hence the confusion.

My lot numbers start with numbers, instead of letters.

So, here is how the lot number works.

First letter - Year
Second letter - Month
Numbers following - day
F# - press
last number - shift

So, if you had a lot number like this: HA25F3 1 That would mean it was made in 2010, in January, on the 25th, on press 3, on 1st shift.

However, on my boxes it is printed like this: 25HA F3 1 Someone screwed up.
