What if you remember buying some, then dumping them in your 1/2 full bucket of bullets?

ETA: I have a friend that did this.

The 1000 carton I picked up at Cabela's matches the symbol number. I don't see a lot number.

Just called Winchester. My lot is not included. I couldn't see lot number until she described where it is located. It is on the left tab on the front of the 500 round carton lid. It is stamped in the black tab.
