Olin Winchester this week issued a recall on selected lots of 9mm Luger 115 grain full metal jacket and 115 grain jacketed hollow point pistol ammunition boxed both under its name and Herter's. 

Over 50 lots are covered in the Winchster-branded recall, with ammo symbols Q4172, RED9, USA9JHP, USA9MMVP, USA9W, and WW9B. Herter's branded 115 grain 9mm FMJ with symbol HRT9A and lot numbers SC13LD44, SC13LD45, SD10LD44 or SD10LD45 are also included. 

The ammo maker notes that if 115-grain 9mm ammunition with any of the above symbols was purchased before March 25, 2021, it is not subject to recall.

From Winchester: 

Winchester has determined the above lots of 9mm Luger 115 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 (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.

To determine if your ammunition is subject to this notice, review the Symbol and Lot Number. If it is any of the above Symbols and Lot Numbers, immediately discontinue use and contact Winchester toll-free at 844-653-8358 for free UPS pick-up of the recalled ammunition. Upon receipt of your recalled ammunition, Winchester will ship replacement ammunition directly to you or issue you a reimbursement check.

This notice applies only to the above 9mm Luger 115 FMJ and JHP Symbols with the above Lot Numbers. Other Symbols or Lot Numbers are not subject to this recall.

If you have any questions concerning this 9mm Luger 115 FMJ / JHP pistol ammunition recall please call toll-free 844-653-8358, write to Winchester (600 Powder Mill Road, East Alton, IL 62024 Attn: 9mm Luger Recall), or visit our website at www.winchester.com.
