    .22 LR Ammo Recall

    Olin Corporation, through its Winchester Division, is recalling two (2) lots of M*22™ 22 Long Rifle 40 Grain Black Copper Plated Round Nose rimfire ammunition.
    Symbol Number: S22LRT
    Lot Numbers: GD42L and GD52L
    Winchester has determined the above lots of 22 Long Rifle rimfire ammunition may contain double powder charges. Ammunition with double powder charges may subject the shooter or bystanders to a risk of serious personal injury and/or death, or cause firearm damage, rendering the firearm inoperable.
    DO NOT USE WINCHESTER® M*22™ 22 Long Rifle RIMFIRE AMMUNITION WITH LOT NUMBERS GD42L or GD52L. The ammunition Lot Number is imprinted (stamped without ink) on the left tuck flap of the 500-round carton as indicated here. The 1000-round intermediate carton does not have a Lot Number.

    Could be a costly, foolish mistake. Not something I would recommend.

    My local wally world sold 6,000 rounds of this stuff on Tuesday. I was mad for not getting up at the crack of dawn to beat the ammo scalpers...the sporting goods manager said they (scalpers) bought it all in less than 12 minutes then biotched him out for not having more on hand! Something tells me the suckers that bought it from them off BP are not getting a refund from them. Winchester will do right by them though, if they are smart enough to call.

    I heard an interview from the 2014 shot show with ammo & powder manufactures saying it will be at least another year before they get back to per madness inventory on 22lr....
