Lake City 308 Head Stamp Question


#1

I was out to the range today, and someone had fired and left a mixture of 308 brass laying in the grass.
Two of the cases I picked up, have a head stamp marking I have never seen before.
At 10 o’clock the LC for Lake City
At 2 o’clock one has 02 the other 04 for 2002 and 2004
At 6 o’clock LR, I would assume that is for Long Range, but long range what?
Tracer?
Target?
Sniper?
Anyone out there with the answer?

That is the current crop of the M118, 7.62x51, LC Match ammunition. If you’ll do a search you’ll find a recent thread discussing Match ammunition.

Well, never mind the search. Here it is.
