I have some white boxes of SS-195 LF, some are marked Law Enforcement or Military only. Some are not marked this way. Is there a difference in them? Is one more collectible due to the box markings?

Not if its all white box. Check the lot numbers. Probably 2 lots. It won't change the value of it. White box is rarer than SS192. I see sales of 192 but never white box 195. Difference between the two is the primer, leaded vs non leaded.

The white box was imported from Belgium. I think I have a half case left from a 07 lot.

It was my understanding that all SS192/195/198/ in addition to SS190, L191, SB193, and FR199 are all imported from Belgium?

It is/was, but the white box is no longr available like the SS192. Isnt a white and blue box used now for the SS195 from Belgium?

Its been a very long time since I purchased anything other than SS198.

Yup....White Box SS195 imported from Belgium.

This White Box SS195 replaced the SS192 and as I said, the only difference is the SS195 has a lead free primer.

It is considered hotter than the current imported Blue box SS195LF. This stuff is harder to find than the SS192. Everyone was hording the SS192 when it was announced that FN was discontinuing it but shooting all their SS195 White Box. The leaded primer was in demand for longer shelf life as the newer lead free primers had a unknown shelf life, estimated at 10 years.

I know, who keeps 10 yo ammo.....I guess I do.

So now you can occasionally find people dumping the SS192 but I have not seen any White Box SS195 for sale.
