    Winchester Issue Warning and Recall Notice on 130 Grain Full Metal Jacket .38 Special

    Winchester have issued a recall notice on several lots of their 130 grain Full Metal Jacket .38 Special white box ammunition. This is due to the possibility that they have incorrect powder loadings.

    Here’s Winchester’s product recall notice in full:

    Olin Winchester, LLC (“Winchester”) is recalling three (3) lots of 38 Special 130 Grain Full Metal Jacket centerfire ammunition.
    Symbol: USA38SPVP

    Lot Numbers: KF21, KL30 and KM52

    Winchester has determined the above lots of 38 Special ammunition may contain incorrect powder charges. Ammunition with excessive powder charges may cause firearm damage, rendering it inoperable, and subjecting the shooter and bystanders to a risk of serious personal injury or death.

    DO NOT USE WINCHESTER® 38 SPECIAL 130 GRAIN SYMBOL USA38SPVP WITH LOT NUMBERS KF21, KL30 or KM52. The ammunition Lot Number is ink stamped inside the right tuck flap of the 100-round carton as indicated here. The symbol is printed above the UPC bar code.

    I bought a case of 12 gauge AA's. Out of 3 boxes we had 3 wads that suck in the hull, the shot rolled down the barrel

    Thanks Hawg.
    I have several boxes of that out in the barn. I’ll have to check lot numbers when I get home.

    I don’t think they could cram enough powder in a 38 case to damage a Blackhawk.
