    I received a letter today about recalled lots of Accurate 4064, 2495, and 4350, manufactured prior to October 1st, 2016.
    Lots affected prior to October 1st, 2016 are as follows;
    4064, lots 2-16
    2495, lots 2-17
    4350, lots 2-22

    On each 1lb & 8lb container, there is a box containing the 8 digit date/lot code.
    The first 6 digits are the date (Example: 0129148 = Jan 29th, 2014, Lot 8)

    If you have any of these that qualify, give them a call @ 406-234-0422

    I have 7 pounds of 2495 left that fall within the recall. The open one looked/smelled fine, but two of the unopened containers feel swollen, and even look slightly "pillowed".
    Ugh.
    Western/Alliant states that signs will include distorted lids, discoloration in the area of the lid, red fumes when opened, and an acidic smell.
    They recommend you fill them with water to render them inert, and don't load any ammo with them.

    aaaand, the recall does not extend to loaded ammo, so if you used it, you are SOL.

    I rolled up a bunch of 308 in 3 years....... I'm about to pay for not including powder lot#s in my load data

    I had 2 remaining 8-lb jugs subject to the Accurate Powder recall. General Dynamics screwed something up pretty badly, it appears. Western Powder handled things smoothly, and my peach tree and blackberries got a hefty dose of nitrogen!

    It wasnt as bad as I'd feared. I only had (304) rounds of 308 (and no 30-06) left with the cursed powder.

    I did not yet read through pages 2 and 3. I did read through the links posted in the OP. There are more powders recalled than just Li'l Gun and AA 3100.
    If you have not read the linked info, do so.

    Edit: finished reading. I see that much of the info in the links has been picked up by other posters.

    I rec'd an email from Western Powders:


    Western Powders is issuing a recall of Accurate 2520 1 lb. bottles with lot number 0913192116. The lot number is stamped on the back of the bottle. This is a limited recall and ONLY applies to this lot number of Accurate 2520.

    it depends on your load & pressure, in most cases if you are reloading to magnum velocities the general answer is yes
