DO?NOT USE WINCHESTER? M*22? 22 Long Rifle RIMFIRE AMMUNITION WITH LOT NUMBERS GD42L or GD52L. 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.

There is no joking matter when it pertains to overloaded ammunition so please contact Winchester if you have any of this ammunition in your possession. ?I must say though when I first read this in email from a reader of the site (thank you) I thought this has to be a joke. I haven’t seen any bulk box 22lr ammunition in over a year.
