    I have some M-22...but unless those lot numbers were in the supply chain over a year ago, I don't have to worry about the recall... :rolleyes:

    Hope it all went to the flippers and they loose money as others will not buy it as word gets out about the recall.:) Personally I have not ever purchased that particular type of .22 ammo thank goodness.

    Heard from a friend, they are refunding the purchase price not replacing the ammo.

    The guberment probably came up with this recall to get you to turn your ammo in......I had to say it before some other tinfoil hatter did.:D

    It's not about safety; they want all that extra powder back. :)

    Does anyone know the dates these were produced? All of mine is over a year old. I haven't checked the date code yet.

    If retail is all they're giving and not replacing it then you might as well sell it to the flippers and gougers for five times what you got in it and let them deal with it. I have some of the m-22 bricks and free pickup and refund which will be their MSRP even if you happen to have a receipt won't cut it.

    WOW, I was beginning to wonder where all the powder went due to all the under charged Winchester Wildcat powder went! Now we know!

    Thankfully, that is one Winchester product I don't use!

    I have 1000 rounds that was in the recall. I talked to Winchester and they said that they are going to cut a check for more than the current market price. How much more I am not sure. I paid normal price for these, but to find another 1000 rounds to replace these is going to be hard to do. I don't want to chance a double charge since my kids shoot the 22's just as much as I do.

    Just one more reason I may have to give up shooting rimfire guns. Factory ammo has become pretty much junk. I just love it when people tell me I should never carry my handloads for self defense. This recall is the best rebuttal I can think of. Ammunition is something that should not be mass produced at max production rates.

    i wonder what type of velocity you'd get from them?

    I have a bunch of the M22, luckily none are in the recalled lot number...
    I'd be ticked if they paid me back rather than supplying new ammo as we all know how hard it is to find.
    If I had any of the recalled stuff I'd be tempted to weigh each round and discard any overcharged ones rather than send mine back for money.

    When did you buy them?

    Ole Farmerbuck - I bought them a couple of months ago from Cabela's.

    Rhinoh I had thought about weighing them but if I was to miss one and it blow up on one of my kids I would not be very liked in my house. I wouldn't like myself very much either. I wish that they would replace rather than cut a check also.
