Illinois-based Olin-Winchester last week announced a product warning and recall on two lots of .17 HMR 20-grain Jacketed Hollow Point Rimfire ammunition.

The ammunition will have the symbol X17HMR1 on both the 1000-round cases and 50-round plastic boxes while the lot numbers to look for are NB51 or NB61. Other symbols or lot numbers are not subject to recall.


“Winchester has determined the above lots of 17 HMR ammunition may contain no powder charges. Ammunition with no powder charges may result in a bullet remaining in the barrel (i.e., 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.”


Those who find they have one of the affected lots are urged to “immediately discontinue use and contact Winchester toll-free at 844-653-8358 for free UPS pick-up of the recalled ammunition.”
