Remington has announced a recall of some lots of .22 Hornet ammunition.
Do Not Use Remington .22 Hornet 45 Gr PSP Ammunition
Lot Numbers J29EAI, J29EBI, J30EAI, J30EBI or K01JDI
According to the recall notice: “Remington has determined that five Lots of its .22 Hornet 45Gr PSP ammunition may have improper powder charge weights. The five Lot Numbers are identified above. Improper powder charge weights may result in a malfunction of the cartridge when the firearm is fired. This malfunction may result in a bullet being lodged in the barrel creating an obstruction. If another round is fired with an obstruction in the barrel, a barrel burst may occur. A barrel burst could result in property damage, serious personal injury or death.”
So, not an overcharge but rather an undercharge. Still a problem.
Spread the word. It isn’t the most popular round, but we can’t be too careful.
