Winchester Recall

Olin Winchester has issued a recall of several lots of its 9 mm ammunition. Owners of any of the company’s 9 mm cartridges with 115-gr. full metal jacket bullets or 115-gr. jacketed hollow points need to immediately discontinue their use until they consult the symbol and lot numbers printed on the box to determine if the loads are affected by the recall. Ammunition purchased before March 25, 2021, is not subject to the recall.

The symbols impacted are: Q4172, RED9, USA9JHP, USA9MMVP, USA9W and WW9B.

Lot Numbers include: SC03LD44, SC03LD45, SC03LD46, SC03LD47, SC13LD1, SC13LD6, SC13LD18, SC13LD44, SC13LD45, SC13LD46, SC13LD47, SC52LD44, SC52LD45, SC52LD46, SC52LD47, SC62LD44, SC62LD45, SC62LD46, SC62LD47, SC72LD44, SC72LD45, SC72LD46, SC72LD47, SC92LD44, SC92LD45, SC92LD46, SC92LD47, SD10LD1, SD10LD3, SD10LD6, SC10LD12, SD10LD18, SD10LD46, SD10LD47, SD50LD1, SD50LD3, SD50LD6, SD50LD11, SD50LD12, SD50LD18, SD50LD46, SD50LD47, SD60LD1, SD60LD3, SD60LD6, SD60LD11, SD60LD12, SD60LD18, SD70LD1, SD70LD3, SD70LD6, SD70LD11, SD70LD12, SD70LD18, SD80LD1, SD80LD3, SD80LD6, SD80LD11, SD80LD12 and SD80LD18.

The symbol designation and location of the lot numbers are depicted for one product in the photograph above. The recall webpage includes locations for all other cartridge boxes that fall under this notification.

Winchester has determined the above lots of 9 mm 115-gr. FMJ and JHP ammunition may contain propellant that does not properly ignite and burn when the cartridge is fired. Ammunition containing propellant that does not properly ignite and burn may result in a bullet remaining in the barrel—a bullet-in-bore obstruction. Firing a subsequent bullet into the bore obstruction could cause firearm damage, rendering the firearm inoperable and subjecting the shooter and bystanders to a risk of serious personal injury.

Do not use Winchester 9 mm 115-gr. FMJ or JHP cartridges of the above symbols with any of the above lot numbers. Owners of ammunition affected by this recall should immediately discontinue its use and contact Winchester toll-free at (844) 653-8358 to arrange for free UPS pick-up of the recalled ammunition. Upon receipt of the ammunition, the company will ship replacement cartridges directly or issue a reimbursement check.

This notice applies only to the above 9 mm Luger 115-gr. FMJ and JHP symbols and lot numbers. Other symbols or lot numbers are not subject to this recall. Enthusiasts with questions about the recall can also call toll-free (844) 653-8358, write to Winchester at 600 Powder Mill Road, East Alton, IL 62024 (Attn: 9mm Luger Recall), or visit the company website.
