    Update: Another email from VCDL:


    Here's the official link to the .45 ACP recall notification from Federal. Thanks to Malcolm Blundell for sending it to me:

    http://www.federalpremium.com/pdf/45_Auto_warning.pdf


    THIS IS SERIOUS

    I just got an email from a member who said that an H&K, using the ammo mentioned in the recall, blew up in someone's hand a couple of weeks ago at the Hampton Road Criminal Justice Training Academy!

    Try to keep this on page one. Everyone needs to see this info. I don't have any .45's so it doesn't affect me at this point, but there are lots of people that do.

    I checked a box of Champion I had. Took me a while to find the lot number - it's stamped on one of the flaps. Couldn't really read it, but I think the first two letters were MP. I so I guess I am not affected.

    For what's it worth, it took 5 weeks for to me to get the recalled ammunition replaced by Federal. A bit of a pain, but now it's done.

    Looks like no madder the name on the box they all came off the same line.
    So much for the arguments of one being better than another
