    I ordered some winchester brass for my 7mm WSM from Midway a while back.I ordered 4 bags(50 per bag),I got 2 bags in,and 2 were back ordered.I just got the 2 back ordered bags.They all appear to have the same lot #.There is a number on the bottom right hand corner of the bag E125312 B42.Is this the lot#?I just wanted to make sure before I mix them together.

    No, the #'s you posted are not the lot #. I have 100 rounds bags of 45 acp purchased 2-3 years ago that are marked with the same # E125311B41 of 308 100 round bags purchased last week. I THINK the # above the bar code is the lot # but I would also like confirmation. In my case that # is 2BM41 on latest batch of 308 and on previous 308 that # was 2BM38.

    After taking another look at the bags,the # above the bar code on the first 2 bags I bought are 2BB51,and the # on the second 2 bags I have are 1BB51.So maybe that is the lot #.???

    Yep, I'm going to assume those are lot #'s until until someone tells me differently and I can confirm.
