Not sure if this is the right forum to post this, my apologies in advance if it is. My question however, is this: Why do some reloading component manufacturers make the lot number so hard to find and once found, so hard to read? Some have gotten the right idea and I only need a good magnifying glass to read the number/letter sequence, but others? Smudged, hidden, ran out of ink, cut in half while opening the box, etc. Is this just me?

Not often do I have an interest in lot numbers. Sometimes I look at them just to see if boxes of the same caliber/load have the same lot number. I have never been able to distinguish one lot from another in the same load.

With live ammo, I'm not really concerned, it's when I'm working up a handload that I have the issue as different lots of the same powder can vary slightly in burning speed or primers can vary in power. If a bullet manufacturer changes the length of the bearing surface in a new lot of a popular bullet without informing the shooting public, pressures can get too high real fast.
