Lot numbers are stenciled on the top or bottom of the can, or on the label.......

For sopme powders, there have been significant changes between different lots. For others, not much if any. IMR 4350 has always proven faithful for me. But Norma N205 was one that was quite doifferent (up to two grains difference) in max loads between lots of powder. So have some of the Alliant Reloader (RL) types.
