A Public Service Announcement

Peter, aka Bayou Renaissance Man posted a warning a couple days ago that slipped through the cracks.  Well, MY cracks.

It seems that Winchester produced some faulty duty ammunition in caliber 40 Smith & Wesson.  The  failure  involves some of the cartridge casings having been produced without a flash hole. This condition completely eliminates the ability of this Service cartridge to fire.  (speaking of slipping through the cracks…)

Ya think?

Obviously, this warning is primarily for law enforcement and previous law enforcement officers who may have some of this ammunition in their possession.  Certainly, some may even have reached civilian hands.

Again, boxed ammunition with the following codes must be removed from service IMMEDIATELY:

  • Product Code: Q4355
  • Day Code: Any code beginning with F or EN

(I wonder if any of this was included in the mega-bazillion rounds of ammunition recently purchased by the DHS?  Just thinking outloud.  –  Guffaw)
