from what I can tell it just looks like a newer box. the writing is all the same. I think they would fly the same.

They're the same bullet. Notice the 5 digit number on the end panel that's the same on both boxes. If they were a different bullet style, the numbers would not be the same.

Did you shoot a few to determine if the POI is the same?

Don't take the word of others as gospel. At least when yer shooting at game , paper that's another story.

That should be done any time you open a new box of ammo even if you know they're the same. Many guys will buy a few boxes of the same lot number that's on the inside of the end flap at one time just because they were made at the same time under the same conditions.

I'm starting to think that Remington has dropped the "Express" line of ammunition.

The R30062 is an index number, which corresponds to a bullet/load/round count, basically identifying the product for sale. For example, I use Remington UMC 50grn JHP's out of one of my AR's for plinking, I buy the 40rnd box that says: L223R8B. I called Rem once about it because I could only find the 20rnd box on the shelves around, which is labeled: L223R8. It's the same load, confirmed with Remington, just a different packaging, hence the "B".

So I'd personally say that the R30062 refers to the Remington Core-loct 30-06 20rnd box with the same load, no matter what the box labeling looks like.
