    Winchester 22LR ammo

    Not sure if this should be here or "Ammunition" but anyway.... Just came across this:

    "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".

    Full report:

    Don't even know if this ammo is sold in the UK but it looks a bit nasty!

    It's for target and plinking, or that's what it says on the box. If it is for plinking I doubt that the quality will be the best so probably wouldn't appeal to the target shooting fraternity in this country anyway. I can't see a double charge being much of a safety issue in most bolt action rifles but I'm not so sure about semis.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    I'm surprised there is room for a double charge, last Winnie sub I took apart just about had a case full.

    i find winnie subs an aweful round , really went off RWS also , really like the CCI's i have been using I have about 50 rounds of Winnie high velocity that next time on the range I am just gonna use up and not bother where on the target it lands.
