Product Safety Recall Notice
Warning

DO NOT USE REMINGTON 22 HORNET 45 GR PSP AMMUNITION WITH
LOT NOS. J29EAI, J29EBI, J30EAI, J30EBI OR K01JDI

Remington has determined that five Lots of its 22 Hornet 45 Gr PSP ammunition may have improper powder charge weights. The five Lot Numbers are identified above. Improper powder charge weights may result in a malfunction of the cartridge when the firearm is fired. This malfunction may result in a bullet being lodged in the barrel creating an obstruction. If another round is fired with an obstruction in the barrel, a barrel burst may occur. A barrel burst could result in property damage, serious personal injury or death.

Remington has improper powder charge weight :eek:, I would have never guessed! :p Really though, all their .22 ammo should get recalled and never sold again.

Remington ammo is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get.

THANKS for the Heads up! I will check my ammo. Might want to move this post to the Ammo discussions forum. Because .22 Hornet is Center fire it might not get noticed here. Thanks again!
