    Information Crossed Off Ammo Box

    I bought a few boxes of ammo (Federal HST 9mm) to run through my Shield to see how they perform and they came in today. The box of 124gr ammo has what I'd consider normal markings, but the box of 147gr has a black mark, almost as if something was omitted. Any thoughts as to what would be there?

    I don't see any recalls so I'm not concerned that it's obscuring a bad lot number, but I am curious.

    Maybe a factory worker couldn't get his permanent marker to work so he used your box to scribble on. That's all I got.

    Maybe crossing out the QC or batch stamps like those on the other box that are "OTNOP" and "ST458"?

    Oh well, thanks all for the input. I'm going to chalk it up to a broken stamp on the printer or something like that. Ill run a few mags through this weekend and if they all go bang, I won't give it another thought.

    I had thought this was more common than not and figured i'd get a faster response here. I have reached out to Federal and I'll update when I hear.
