    Winchester .22Lr Xperts and Wildcats with lot numbers containing the letters XN, YA, YB or YC are being recalled. they have been loaded with a double powder charge. They are dangerous to shoot like this and can damaged your gun. according to winchester

    If your box is recalled you can gett a refund by sending them to:

    Olin Corporation- Winchester Division
    Tile Warehouse
    Powder Mill Road, Gate 4A
    East Alton, IL 62024
    Attention: 22LR Recall

    Basspro sent the warning through the mail to recent buyers from their stores. I had a box of 500 that were recalled. Go check yours!

    I'll bet I know where all them bad bullets were made,right here in Oxford,Miss.They put in a new 22. plant in the old Emerson Elect.building and they don't know what they're doing.A new factory and new workers who don't know what they're doing is trouble.I sure wouldn't shoot a handload reloaded by a guy that just started handloading.
