Winchester 22 Long Rifle Rimfire Ammunition Recall
Quote:East Alton, IL – -( Olin Corporation, through its Winchester Division, is recalling two (2) lots of M*22 22 Long Rifle 40 Grain Black Copper Plated Round Nose rimfire ammunition.

Symbol Number: S22LRT

Lot Numbers: GD42L and GD52L

Winchester has determined the above lots of 22 Long Rifle rimfire ammunition may contain double powder charges.

Ammunition with double powder charges may subject the shooter or bystanders to a risk of serious personal injury and/or death, or cause firearm damage, rendering the firearm inoperable.


The ammunition Lot Number is imprinted (stamped without ink) on the left tuck flap of the 500-round carton as indicated here.

The 1000-round intermediate carton does not have a Lot Number.
To determine if your ammunition is subject to this notice, review the Symbol Number and Lot Number.

If it is Symbol Number S22LRT with a Lot Number containing GD42L or GD52L immediately discontinue use and contact Winchester toll-free at 866-423-5224 or visit for free UPS pick-up of the recalled ammunition.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
Good luck getting anyone to voluntarily return any .22lr ammo now.
Even if there's a promise of refunded money or replacement ammo, too many people may want to hold on to what they have in spite of risk.
As stupid as it may sound, people do tend to gamble and also like the security of having something in hand rather than accepting a promise.
There are three types of people in the world:
Those who make things happen,
Those who watch things happen,
And those who wonder what happened.
Even with a double charge, is there any firearm out there that couldn't handle it?
