    I wonder whether ramping up production might have contributed to the recalls. In particular the hiring of new people who obviously don't have any experience.

    So much for the touted commercial ammo "reliability." Seems to be a frequent occurence as of late.

    What is the standard procedure for ammo recalls? Do you get reimbursed, a coupon, or will they mail you out replacements?
