Remington issued a safety warning about some of its .38 Special +P ammo because some boxes or box may also contain some .357 Magnum rounds.
So, if you recently bought a new 100-round box of .38 Special +P 125-grain semi-jacketed hollow point ammunition (product number L38S2B) with the Lot code P24UA18R, than Remington asks that you not use it — it might have a little more wallop than you want.
In case you didn’t know, you shouldn’t use .357 Magnum ammunition with a gun chambered for .38 Special specifically because it could result in damaging the gun or, even worse, yourself.
You can check to see if you have an at risk box, according to Remington’s press release, by checking the stenciled Lot code on the side of the box. In addition, the Lot code will be stamped on the inside flap of the box, too.
Once again the Lot code is P24UA18R.
Remington asks that if you have any of this Remington/UMC .38 Special +P 125 grain semi-jacketed ammunition, immediately discontinue using it and contact Remington. The company will then arrange for the return shipment of your ammunition and upon receipt will send you replacement ammunition at no cost.
For any consumer questions or instructions on how to return of your Remington/UMC 38 Special +P 125 grain semi-jacketed ammunition with Lot Number P24UA18R, please contact the Remington Consumer Service Department at 1-800-243-9700, Prompt #4.
