One box has a cartoon looking eagle on it, the other has a realistic picture of an eagle on it. I had heard that one box is the new stuff and the other is old stuff. So which is which?

I ask in particular because I have a cartoon-box .40SW 165gr with like 980ft/s muzzle velocity listed on the back, while my realistic-eagle box of 165gr has like 1140ft/s muzzle velocity listed on the back. Both boxes have the same product number: AE40R3

I want to know which is current production because I'd like to buy the hotter loaded ammo, and if the weaker loaded ammo is current production, I want to buy up as much of the hotter stuff as I can get my hands on before it's gone.
