I think its from 1966.I fairly sure of the manf. Date but the date should be stamped on the head of the case.

Thanks,
I have a full shipping crate of that lot, 728 rounds, and I don't want to
start opening it up and disturbing the contents to pull a bullet.
It's in clips and bandoleers.

It's kinda cool the way it is.

You've got willpower!

That unopened case would be calling me to go to the range

I am not able to check right now but that lot number sure sounds familar. My LC is either 67 dated in .30 cal cans or 69 dated in .50 cal cans and I have quite a bit of both all in M1 clips.

Well,
I am not in a hurry to shoot it as I reload for all my rifles.
I just stumbled on it and bought it.

Actually it's for sale on Gunbroker.

I just wanted to know th date in case anyone asked.

Thanks,
Gerry
