Winchester found that the mentioned ammunition may not have the right propellant and will not properly ignite or burn whenever fired. They’ve found that these have the chance of creating a “squib” load, where the projectile remains in the barrel.
Then if the next round is fired it could cause a catastrophic failure, firearm damage, and personal injury.
Winchester has stated that if you have any of this ammo stop using it immediately and to contact them. They said that they will replace your ammo or issue a check.
