.45 AMMO WRA 22326 600 round tin

Recommended Posts

Any way to date the tin and the ammo by the lot #

 

Handle is on the top, still sealed...

 

I bought the ammo to shoot, but thinking collectors might want it if WWII...

 

Thanks for any help with the ammo

Definitely WW2.. I have WW2 WRA ammo in my collection with lot numbers both below and above (but not contiguous to) that lot number. Hopefully Charlie Fick will comment.

 

Thanks, Al

I have seen the 600 lot cans go for $375-$475 in the past. You may even get $550-$600 depending on the collector !

Sorry, but your ammo is not WW2. Winchester Repeating Arms M1911 rounds produced in 1945 were from Lots 22140 to 22196. Your ammo was most likely made in the mid-50s. The lot number information came from my 1946 copy of Ordnance Service Bulletin SB 9-AMM 4 (Ammunition Lots and Grades).

 

Post-war through 1959, the lot numbers ran from 22197 to 22451, as listed in my 1959 copy of Army Technical Bulletin TB 9-AMM 4 (Small Arms Ammunition Lots and Grades).

 

A sealed spam can is a desirable collectible no matter when the ammo was made.

 

Hope this helps.

I stand corrected. That is great information. My lot numbers came from different calibers and shotshells, but not from .45 ammo. Makes sense that different calibers of ammo produced by Winchester were assigned lot numbers in contiguous groups.
