Remington Ammo Recall

A safety recall has been issued by Remington Ammunition for three lots of Core-Lokt Tipped Remington .300 Win. Mag. cartridges. Affected lot numbers are N16OCA373, N17OAA373 and N22OCA373 and bullet weight is 180 grains. Use of the ammunition could potentially result in firearm damage and/or personal injury. Enthusiasts with these loads should, in an abundance of safety, discontinue use immediately and check labeling on their boxes and/or cases to determine whether it is included in this notification.

The company has determined certain boxes in those lots may contain cartridges loaded with an incorrect propellant. None of the company’s other .300 Win. Mag Core-Lokt Tipped lot codes are affected by this notice. The recall applies only to Remington Core-Lokt Tipped—.300 Win Mag 180-grain ammunition, index number RT300WC. The part number is 29038 and lot codes are N16OCA373, N17OAA373 or N22OCA373.

Product lot codes are found on the inside flap of each individual box or along the outside of the product’s case. No other lots are affected by this issue. The company has also posted a convenient resource to help owners find the lot, part and index numbers on each carton and individual boxes.

Enthusiasts who possess ammunition from any of these lots need to immediately discontinue its use and to contact Remington by phoning (800) 243-9700. The company’s Consumer Service Department will arrange for the return shipment of the affected ammunition and, upon its receipt, will send replacement cartridges free of charge.

The Core-Lokt Tipped line is quickly becoming one of the firm’s most popular offerings. It’s available in .243 Win., 6.5 Creedmoor, .270 Win., .280 Rem., 7 mm Rem. Mag., .30-’06 Sprg., .300 Win.
