In doing some additional background for this piece I noted that Winchester has had the same problem on nearly an annual basis.

H/T AmmoLand.

Please help me spread the word about this recall.

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Olin Winchester, LLC is recalling two (2) lots of 17 HMR 20 Grain Jacketed Hollow Point Rimfire rifle ammunition.

  • Symbol: X17HMR1
    ‘Lot Numbers (last four characters): NB51 and NB61

Winchester has determined the above lots of 17 HMR ammunition may contain no powder charges.

Ammunition with no powder charges may result in a bullet remaining in the barrel (i.e., a bullet-in-bore obstruction).

Firing a subsequent bullet into the bore obstruction could cause firearm damage, rendering the firearm inoperable and subjecting the shooter and bystanders to a risk of serious personal injury.

The video below is 8 years old.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.
