    Not funny if you shoot a round that has a double charge in it!

    Would be funny if they are just trying to get it back to resell it for a higher price! (I'm guessing they aren't)

    You're absolutely correct.

    Hopefully, the folks that work for Winchester, the distributors, and the warehouses that hoovered up this ammunition long before it ever reached any store shelves will learn about the recall and return the ammo before they hurt themselves or try to sell it for $75 a brick.

    Just when you thought you had a stockpile. Break out the scale, weigh them against another lot and just send back the heavy ones:thumbup: (kidding. probably not a safe method)

    Hey timac, is that hoarding, or just a really bad addiction ? :worship:

    Hey dolooper, what about this:

    Code:
    while(ammo.SalesVolume > MIN_ACCEPTABLE_VOLUME){
    
        ammo.Price.Jack();
    
    }

    :laugh:

    Is this Winchester's entry into the ammo resale market?

    Is that double charging or charging double?

    Crap, I have 6k rounds of that stuff.

    They offer free pick up, but say nothing about replacement.

    Need to check my lot numbers.

    I will right now. Heck, I bought some Remington military "target" 22 last year. About 5% of them don't ignite, but I'm still shooting the stuff.
