Remington .17 HMR Product Warning

Remington recently learned from its supplier that its .17 HMR ammunition is unsuitable for use in semi-automatic rifles, and Model 597 .17 HMR semi-automatic rifles are unsuitable for use with any ammunition. Such use could result in property damage or serious personal injury. Remington recommends discontinuing the use of Remington .17 HMR in semi-automatic rifles and discontinuing the use of the Model 597 .17 HMR in all applications.

Te return any Remington .17 HMR ammunition or Model 597 .17 HMR rifle, contact Remington Consumer Service at (800) 243-9700, Prompt No. 3. For each complete box of 50 rounds of Remington .17 HMR ammunition returned, Remington will provide a coupon good for the purchase of any Remington Ammunition at your local dealer.

Remington will provide a $200.00 coupon for a Model 597 HMR synthetic stock semi-automatic rifle, and a $250.00 coupon for one with a laminate stock; each coupon is good toward the purchase of a replacement Remington firearm.
