    Powder Load Concerns Lead to Ammunition Recall

    Olin Corporation, through its Winchester Division, is recalling several lots of its WILDCAT® 22 (Symbol Number WW22LR) and XPERT® 22 (Symbol Number XPERT22) 22 Long Rifle rimfire ammunition.

    Lot Numbers containing Letters: XN, YA, YB or YC

    Through extensive evaluation Winchester has determined the above lots of WILDCAT® 22 and XPERT® 22 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 and/or death when fired.

    To determine if your ammunition is subject to this notice, review the Lot Number. If the Lot Number contains the letters XN, YA, YB or YC return the ammunition to Winchester via United Parcel Service (UPS). Securely pack the ammunition into a corrugated cardboard box, write "CARTRIDGES, SMALL ARMS ORM-D" on the outside, and ship to:

    Olin Corporation - Winchester Division
    Tile Warehouse
    Powder Mill Road, Gate 4A
    East Alton, IL 62024
    Attention: 22LR Recall

    Please include your name, address, and phone number. Winchester will send you coupons good for replacement ammunition from your local Winchester dealer.

    This notice applies only to WILDCAT® 22 and XPERT® 22 rimfire ammunition with Lot Numbers containing the letters XN, YA, YB or YC. Other Symbol Numbers or Lot Numbers are not subject to this recall and should not be returned to Winchester.

    If you have any questions concerning this recall please call toll-free 866-423-5224 (U.S. & Canada), write to the above address, or visit our website at www.winchester.com.

    shipping would probably cost more than just replacing it out of pocket.
    around here anyways no "UPS Dealers" will take anything that says ORM-D. They make you drive to the depot.

    Interesting. I am going to have to bust open the cabinet and check the boxes. Thanks for this.
    Though I will probably just shoot them through my semi auto anyways. :o
