    My DH and I were FFLs until the beginning of this year when we gave it up. We still get the suppliers' emails and got this one today, thought I would pass it along in case anyone here has any of this ammo. Mods please delete or tell me to and I will if this isn't appropriate- I just know a lot of people here own guns and wanted to get out the word.

    "Certain lots of recently manufactured 45 Auto may contain an incorrect propellant charge. Use of product from these lots may may result in firearms damage and possible serious injury.

    38T401 through 38T414

    If you have in your possession any 45 Auto with the following brand names and part numbers, check and see if the above ammunition contains the above lots: American Eagle (AE45A, AE45N1, or AE45A250), Champion (WM5233), Gold Medal (GM45B), Hi-Shok (45C, 45D) and Federal Personal Defense (C45C, C45D).

    Warning only applies to the lots listed above."

    I'm not going to give out the 800 number because honestly, I don't know whether this applies mainly to FFLs or not. I would say contact the seller of the ammo if you have any of these lots and they can tell you what to do. They should have the info [​IMG]

    Good thing hubby only shoots Winchester and Cor-Bon's out of his .45. Though, even if he shot any of that ammo that is recalled, it wouldn't help. We take all of our ammo out of the boxes and keep it in ammo boxes, so it is all inter-mixed and we would have to get rid of all of it.

    I will tell my FIL, though. I'm not sure what he shoots.

    I'm good, all my pistols are wheel guns. [​IMG] I like my guns to go bang every time I pull the trigger....

    If it needs to be clean to work there's no point in me carrying it.

    Pocket lint?
    Laziness (I'm prone to that one)

    I was watching a show about I think it was anew Springfield for military service (means desert nowadays) that is designed to run without oil and good for 2000 rounds between cleaning.
    For the life of me I can't remember what it was but it looked good to me.

    If I make sure my P220 is clean and I haven't loaded any stupid combination of bullet and seating depth that won't feed I'm confident in it.
