Default Surplus Rem 22LR ammo markings?

I received my order last week. After looking at some of the posts on the ammo I am wondering what lot numbers and dates apply to this stuff. I will start off with a couple of photos of what I received. How about yours?

This is the sticker on the sealed package.

This is the printing on the foil bag itself.

the long # starting with 1305 is the Government inventory number for 22 LR ammunition.
SV is standard velocity (subsonic)

CMP text said this was 1995 manufacture, so RA-95 would be Remington Arms 1995.

The outer foil bag appears to have its own lot num and production date. (lot 1, June 1994)

It's the information about the packing material.
I love the smell of MRT in the morning - it reminds me of . . . wet canvas."
I'm what you'd call a legend in my own mind.

To expand a bit the thirteen digit number is the NSN or National Stock Number.
It breaks down as follows, 1305 this the FSC or federal supply class which in this case is for ammunition up to 30mm. The next two digits give the nation of origin, here 01 for the US which can be from 00 to 09. The next three digits are for the particular item group/weapon system 257 = Cartridges, 22 Cal. and the final four are the individual item number within that item group. The next thing is the DODIC, or Department of Defense Identification Code, which is used for ammunition and explosive, A106 is for Cartridge 22 Cal, Standard Velocity. Finally the lot number breaks down to Remington Arms, Calender year 1995, loaded in February as indicated by the B, lot #001, sublot 052. Whew, I am sure that was a lot more than you wanted to know, but it really is amazing how much information is conveyed by all that once you know how to decode it. Oh and in case you ever wanted to know the NSN for the M1 Garand is 1005-00-674-1425.
