    RA Lot 1

    Not sure this would be considered "vintage" but here's a box of very early M193 5.56. An Uncle gave me a whole ammo can of this over 30 years ago (which I promptly shot) but I decided to keep one box because of the early lot #. The headstamp is RA 63.

    Well worth saving, early military.

    I just fired a couple magazines full of identical ammo a couple days ago; ECS43 steel case in about the same condition. It all shot fine, as good as new.
