    Just received from Bud's Guns, a sealed full case ($8.15/box) which my Kimber 82G seems to love (50 yard target below, five-round groups).
    But I can't find an obvious lot number anywhere on the case, bricks, or boxes. What am I missing?
    The second image shows markings on side of case. Is there a lot number in there somewhere?

    The lot # is stamped in the left endflap of the box - not printed, just stamped.

    When ordering, if you find a lot that your rifle likes, is there a way to be sure that you get the same lot # again? I bought a brick of it, so can I order another brick of that same lot?

    Depends on who you're buying it from - some companies are all about helping customers find & buy in quantity a particular lot # that works well for them. Others don't have a clue...and may not be willing to work with you on it. I've bought samples from various lots of match grade ammo for years from Champions Choice & Champion Shooter Supply. More recently - though it took a bit of explaining what I was after & why - Graf & Sons has been very good to work with. When I bought some of the Fed UM22 from Midway earlier this year, I got three different lots of it all in one order. Don't know whether they were purposely giving me the different lots to test, or whether they just grabbed boxes out of whichever cases were already opened. I'd think Bud's Gun Shop would be good to work with, but there's only one way to find out - call them & ask.

    IOW, if the people who own or work for the company that's selling 22RF ammo of this level of quality are shooters who're familiar with how picky some rimfire rifles can be when it comes to accuracy & lot #s, no problem. If they're just trying to clear a discounted quantity of even high-end ammo, don't expect them to understand.

    There's a company that list their 22 ammo by lot number make and brand but for the life of me I can't remember who they were, If I recall I'll post it
