Winchester ammo recall
Amid a national ammo shortage this is probably the last thing you want to hear. Winchester has issued a recall for some of their 5.56mm centerfire rifle ammo Feb. 4.
Winchester Ammo Recall

The Winchester 5.56mm M855 62 Grain Pene ammunition has the symbol number “ZGQ3308″ and the lot number “WCC10M106-004″.

The company stated in the recall notice that after an extensive evaluation they found that a single lot of Winchester 5.56mm M855 62 Grain Pene (penetrator) ammunition may contain incorrect propellant, an issue that if used may cause damage to the firearm or render it inoperable, or may cause injury to the shooter or bystanders.
Recalls are not that unusual. However I am starting to wonder about the Win. brand. Someone who posted here had some pistol ammo from them with no primer flash holes. Reloaders across the net are commenting about their primers. Got a few Win primers the awhile back, no problems, but makes me wonder about their QC.
