Winchester & Browning ammo recall

Not sure whether this is already been posted, or if this is the right place to post it, but it seems like something that everyone should know about:

Had three almost squibs in a box of 150 of this. I try to never buy WWB but in these times had no choice. I think some manufactures and reloaders are unfortunately cutting corners and quality control.

And since Browning is also sourced from the same company that makes those 9mm ammo for Winchester, it’s also being recalled.

I understand that Herters has also used this same vendor from time to time.
In God we trust; On 'Starting Load' we rely.

Ask me about used Dillon reloading equipment.

If I had known how much better being retired is than working I would have done it FIRST.

FYI: I bought 1000 rounds of Herters that were shipped after the recall date.  I dumped them all in an ammo can and don't have the Lot numbers.  I called in and they are processing all remaining rounds as recalls since I don't have the lot number.  If in doubt, give them a call.

It’s great that they will take the ammo back but it sucks that their QC was so bad that they endangered us all.

Not surprising that qc would drop during times like these.
