I have some Match EPS marked "1005-03080" Speed = 1047.

Which machine was this ammo produced on?

Machine 3

Thanks! The numbering scheme didn't match any of the references that I could find.

While we're at it, can anyone provide any information on:

1. The differences in the ammo from each machine
2. Which machine ammo is usually preferred by particular barrels, reamers, etc.

I don't ask for much, huh? :D Just looking for trends you have noticed in your testing.

In regard to your second question, last year I would have told you Machine 4 is the best. Now I'm not so sure. I have found excellent ammo from 1, 3, 4 & 5. I probably would find some from number 2, I just haven't tried it. Every machine seems capable of producing excellent ammo.

I have a benchmark 2 groove that likes #2 machine.
The rest of my guns generally like 3 or 4.
You are going to have to do some testing with your gun to find out which it likes the best.
