Remington 22 Hornet Ammunition


Do not use Remington 22 Hornet 45 Gr PSP ammunition with lot nos. J29EAI, J29EBI, J30EAI, J30EBI or K01JDI.

Remington has determined that five lots of its 22 Hornet 45 Gr PSP ammunition may have improper powder charge weights. The five lot numbers are identified above. Improper powder charge weights may result in a malfunction of the cartridge when the firearm is fired. This malfunction may result in a bullet being lodged in the barrel creating an obstruction. If another round is fired with an obstruction in the barrel, a barrel burst may occur. A barrel burst could result in property damage, serious personal injury or death.

If you have any of the Remington 22 Hornet 45 Gr PSP ammunition, as identified above, immediately discontinue use of this ammunition and contact Remington at the below telephone number. Remington will arrange for the return shipment of your ammunition and, upon receipt will send you replacement ammunition at no cost to you.
