Winchester Ammo Recall
Marshall, the link in your thread does not take me to the story. Could you re-post the link so we can see the picture of the ammo box which is apparently included in the news article according to the verbiage in the article itself.

I was also unable to find it by doing a Google search. Probably due to my weak use of words in the search engine.
