I noticed that to. The top tin is the 300 rds on strippers that were sold about 18 months ago made in 1946. The bottom tin is 440 rds.
I still have some of my 1946 ammo and will have to pull some and check mine and also see how it looks after shooting it in some wet catalogs. I did have some split neck after shooting it and a funky smell, more so than the 70's surplus.I bought a crate of the 1946 ammo, 880 rounds on stripper clips in two sardine cans. Some shooters of it were complaining about split necks, but have never experience any. Took apart a couple of rounds, the exposed lead base is cupped almost like a Minnie ball. Test in bound wet paper catalogs etc. revealed the bullets mushroomed almost like sporting ammo. I miked the two pulled bullets at .308", even took them to LGS and they got the same .308" results. Strange?
