Bought 2, 8lb. jugs today. Can't find the lot number on them. Have they changed the marking somehow?
This could be a problem, how much for all?
From my notes:
"If you take the 1 lb container that I have and look at the side of the bottle where the Label ends meet, there will be 2 rows of numbers in the middle of bottle, the top 1st number is the size of container in my case 1 lb, the next six numbers is the date when the powder went into the bottle in my case 4/09/12. The next line consisting of 4 or 5 numbers is the lot number, my case 5044."
Here is pics of my 8lbs jugs of varget, one is on the back and the other is a orange sticker.
5810 ? From first picture..
If the lot # is 7061 you have a slow lot.
Well that really sucks, I just bought this jug.
Yes that is the lot number
From the first picture I read 8# jug

Would be nice to see a picture of your labels. it is possible that there is no lot # on the container. here are three 8# jugs of Varget. Two of them have no lot number. Look to the left of all three back labels. Two, center and right, are blank.

Yep that is about the time I bought that jug.
Give to me and I will test it against mine.
I believe if I were to purchase two 8# jugs of the same powder with no lot # then I would completely mix both containers together and make one lot. JMO
That's all you can do, then tune to that powder.
How much slower you talking?
Slower than cold molasses Otis, or the jug I just opened is.
The orange tag ends on 7061. Guess that's the lot. Well I have 16 lbs of it, so if it is slow, I guess I will be doing load testing again. Lucky for me, I still have 3 lbs of the old lot number.
I’m shooting a slow lot in my current BR 30gns doing avg 2811 but it’s the most accurate load I’ve had yet..
