A fellow collector happened across a few boxes of these some time ago. Typical looking .308 WIN by Remington with a 150gr FMJ or “Metal Case” bullet.
Scans of the box label, box end tab and cartridge shown in the photo below:
Possible lot/date code “LW25T” on box end flap:
Note the Remington index code (product code) “INDEX 1308”, this index code CANNOT be found in any catalog listing for Remington ammunition that we can find nor can we find a listing for Remington produced .308 ammunition with a METAL CASE (FMJ) 150gr bullet from the time frame for this type of box.
So is this a special law enforcement contract loading that was not listed by Remington since it was not a normal .308 WIN loading by Remington?
Any information is most welcomed.
