    I have 1 pound of Retumbo and it works very well in my rifle so I want to try and get some more of this lot if possible. It has 2 sets of numbers stamped on the back of the lable and I dont know which set is the actual Lot number ?

    First set of numbers 1080912
    Second set 5088 .

    Can you fellas tell me which set I need to look for ?

    Thanks for your help.......

    Should be the 5088 number and on 8 lb kegs it will be on a sticker and not printed on the label.
