    Recall on Winchester 22lr Rimfire

    Hope this isn't already running?!


    Just got a letter today from my LGS saying that some of the Winchester 22lr Rimfire has a recall on some of their ammo because they may contain double powder charges.

    Here's the detailed info:

    Symbol number: S22LRT
    Lot Numbers: GD42L and GD52L

    DO NOT USE THIS AMMO. Other symbol numbers or lot numbers are not subject to this recall.

    Call toll free 866-423-5224 or write Winchester, 600 Powder Mill Rd., East Alton, IL 62024 Attn: S22LRT Recall or visit Winchester Ammunition

    Well, if the affected lots were made within the last couple of years, I've got nothing to worry about. I sure didn't get any of them!

    Saw this at Wal-Mart on Friday, I believe, and took the picture to post here and completely forgot! Doh! Thanks, Sister. I saw the notice at the WM by Seaboard St but not the others. Oh, also meant to tell you - if you need .22LR, Carolina Forest WM is your best bet!!

    Thanks for posting, but like Kilowatt3 said above, I've got nothing to worry about! I've seen very little .22lr in the past couple of years, and absolutely none of it was Winchester!
