    Winchester Ammo Recall


    Olin Corporation, through its Winchester Division, is recalling several lots of Dynapoint® Magnum 22 Win. Mag. 45 grain Dynapoint rimfire ammunition (Symbol Number USA22M).

    Lot Numbers (first three characters): 1WN and 1XA

    Through extensive evaluation Winchester has determined the above lots of Dynapoint® Magnum 22 Win. Mag. ammunition may contain double powder charges. Double powder charge weight ammunition may cause firearm damage, rendering the firearm inoperable, and subject the shooter to a risk of personal injury when fired.

    This notice applies only to Dynapoint® Magnum 22 Win. Mag. 45 Grain Dynapoint® rimfire ammunition with lot numbers starting with 1WN or 1XA. Other Symbol Numbers or Lot Numbers are not subject to this recall and should not be returned to Winchester.

    Note: The ammunition Lot Number is ink stamped inside the right tuck flap of the 50-round carton as shown here:


    For questions, or to make comments or suggestion, call toll-free 866-423-5224.


    Winchester Ammunition . 427 N. Shamrock St. . East Alton, IL 62024 . 618-258-2000

    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.
