The Illinois-based maker has determined the identified lots of 38 Special ammunition “may contain incorrect powder charges,” going on to say, “Ammunition with excessive powder charges may cause firearm damage, rendering it inoperable, and subjecting the shooter and bystanders to a risk of serious personal injury or death.”
The affected loads carry the lot numbers KF21, KL30 or KM52 inside the right tuck flap of the 100-round carton.
apparently they got it wrong and was a 9mm but still astounding it didnt go boom
How many rounds of 45Auto can you fit in the barrel of a 4595TS? Well this guy managed to squeeze 35 rounds in there. When he called stating he was having accuracy issues he had no idea the rounds had not left the barrel. After receiving his carbine in we discovered the issue, rebareled his 4595TS and sent it back to him. Hows that for customer service?

Yikes, theres alot of extra room in a .38 case...Im going to say theyre definitely over charged. Deadly error right there.
I want to say a .38 special is 18 grains, .357 I believe is 14 or 15 grains, but different burn.
But I read an undercharge can be just as damning as it can leave a "squib" (round) lodged in the barrel, making the next shot...a killer.

"Winchester recall of .38 Special ammo.
This ammo is potentially unsafe to use even in firearms chambered in .357 Magnum."
