Anyone know how to read the manufacture date code on Winchester primers? 

My google-fu came up with very old versions.  Thanks

Here is what I have:

 

HBL049G

KGL105G

NML592G

NMLD312

NDL493G

NEL545G

PDL631G

PCL616G

I hope you have better luck than me. I emailed Winchester twice in the last year asking about primer code dates, and couldn't even tell you if they got the message. No reply, nothing. I had several thousand and wanted to use the older ones first.
