Default Caliber .30 M1, M2, APaq, Tracer Lot Numbers

Does anyone have any records of what Ammunition lot nunbers correlate to which years for production?

Thank you.

Scott

There is a page from the Tech manual for when US military production converted to non corrosive primers but I don't think there is a by year lot number list. Believe some of the folks on the forum have captured info for some years.

Airborne,
Mark

I don’t think data exists for lot #/year correlation. But many have searched for this info by lot number and received headstamp info for their lot or one pretty close.

So…Google your lot number and ammo caliber/type and see what pops up.

We used to have a member here (name escapes me), now deceased, that had information not widely available elsewhere. Dunno what happened to any of that.
