*Beware* Browning BPR .22lr ammo Login/Join

I experienced what I believe to be a double charge using this ammo. From what I've found it is manufactured for Browning by Winchester who had a recall on some .22 lr last year.
I've contacted both Browning and Winchester about this but have received no response.
I should have stuck with CCI's
Thankfully I was wearing eye protection but now I've got a rifle with a broken extractor and 380 rounds of crap 22 that will go in the trash.

Interesting, was this a standard velocity or high velocity ammo.

Well, it doesn’t say anything about not blowing your gun up. So they’re covered.

Ever hear back from Browning? What was the Lot Number of the ammo? I have a box of that same stuff.

Is "Manufacturer Number" the same as "Lot Number?" If so, szuppo said, above, that it is B194122100. Or is that an ID that specifies who the manufacturer is? I dunno, that's why I'm asking.



A mind is a terrible thing.

Page late and a dollar short

I contacted Winchester regarding FTF .17HMR auumunition a couple of years back. About 20% in two boxes between my friend and myself. I bought mine at Cabelas, he bought his at Bass Pro, same lot number though.

Customer Service sent a call tag and refunded at the rate of 15 dollars per box, I sent his, mine and three additional unfired boxes of the same lot.

Took about two weeks start to finish. I was impressed with Winchester as when I initially contacted Cabelas they said “No refunds on ammunition regardless of reason”.

Sorry, haven't checked this post in a bit. Here is the lot number from mine:
