I really hope this doesn't mean they were loading 7mm mag with pistol powder :uhoh: Note to self, do not stand next to anyone shooting a 7mm for the next 6 months.

Looks like important info - I'm going to copy it over to the sticky in reloading forum even tho this is ammo.

I think also we'll make this sticky for a while.

It's required by law actually.

It's required by law to make this a sticky? :confused:



:D

Anyhow, I think that anyone who'd steal these from the mail would either A) shoot the cartridges or B) sell them to someone who will shoot the cartridges. Either way, the resultant death merely tosses some chlorine into the gene pool. And if they try to sue, they probably won't get anywhere since there's a $(*&^$ recall on the stuff!!! :evil:

About two months ago I had a bad batch of winchester T22 .22lr ammo. The cases would split all the way down to the rim on about every 7th or 8th round I fired. Tried it in 2 different guns. So I sent it back to Winchester and about a month later I got a letter from them telling me nothing was wrong with the ammo. Now I have shot probably 1 Million rounds of .22lr ammo since I was 12 (I'm now 45) and I heve never seen a .22lr split like this stuff did.

The gave me two $20 coupons good for winchester products only, this barely covered the cost of the ammo I sent them, and my local gunstore was less than thrilled that they would have to wait 6 weeks to collect on the coupons.

Lets say I was less than thrilled with their response.

Winchester recently recalled some .22mag ammunition as well.

I had ALOT of it. Costs me a pretty penny to ship it all.

What I got back in return........vouchers for DOUBLE what I sent them.

I made out great on that deal - about $80 to the good after shipping.

WalMart took the vouchers without issue, said they had been getting quite a few of them and knew how to take care of them.
