Just FYI - I know every serious shooter has at least one gun chambered in .22 LR, so this info may be relevant to everyone:

Olin Corporation, through its Winchester Division, is recalling several lots of rimfire ammunition.


Lot Numbers containing Letters: XN, YA, YB or YC

Through extensive evaluation Winchester has determined the above lots of SUPER-X HIGH VELOCITY (X22LR) and POWER-POINT (X22LRPP) 22 Long Rifle rimfire ammunition may contain double powder charges. Double powder charge weight ammunition may cause firearm damage, rendering the firearm inoperable, and subject the shooter to a risk of personal injury and/or death when fired.

DO NOT USE WINCHESTER SUPER-X HIGH VELOCITY (X22LR) or POWER-POINT (X22LRPP) 22 Long Rifle RIMFIRE AMMUNITION WITH LOT NUMBERS CONTAINING LETTERS XN, YA, YB or YC. The ammunition Lot Number is imprinted (stamped without ink) on the outside of the right tuck flap of the 50-round box, as indicated here:

To determine if your ammunition is subject to this notice, review the Lot Number. If the Lot Number contains the letters XN, YA, YB or YC return the ammunition to Winchester via United Parcel Service (UPS). Securely pack the ammunition into a corrugated cardboard box, write “CARTRIDGES, SMALL ARMS ORM-D” on the outside, and ship to:
