I received replacement ammo this morning. It is unknown whether Midway or the NRA interceded, but if either did, thank you.

Isn,t the 5.56mm the generato nato round on back order for the U.S. military? Thats probably why you guys haven,t rec.d your replacements yet. Just a thought.Also in sports stores the 5.56mm rounds in general are sold out.

I have experienced the same results as Steve. I even wrote Midway USA, from whom the rounds were purchased, to intercede for me. So far, I have yet to receive a reply. I would expect the NRA to weigh in on the side of their members, and not provide more excuses for this once great Corporation. Maybe a little footnote attached to future Winchester ads would steer people away from their dangerously defective products and lame customer service.

After multiple contacts I still have no idea what I'm getting or when. Last call I was asked what I had agreed to ??? I wasn't offered a choice. Have been told twice my (order) was ready to ship. I understand the recall....I don't understand not being able to deal with it.
