    Hevi Shot ammo- Recall

    Just a heads up. Was out hunting this morning and was using either Hevi Shot 3' #2s or BB's had a Squib and was was stuck mid barrel. Heard the squib so I did not go for another shot thankfully! Came home and researched it and Hevi Shot ammo made prior to a certain date is under recall and will be replaced. Seems it can't take below freezing temps, ( meanwhile its waterfowl ammo) 🙄.

    See link below to get replacement.

          That is some old ammo you have there. The recall was 3 years ago I think. The plastic used in the wads was defective and it shatters in the cold and gets lodged in the barrel

            Exactly what happened. Sounded like a bottle rocket. I got a lot of waterfowl ammo and I grab whatever is laying around so some of its been around a while. I guess the 7 degree temp didn't help. I can't believe I never came across this recall info before today.

              They really did a shit job on getting the information out there. They will give you new shells in exchange.
              It's a good thing you know what you're doing and knew to not shoot again or it could have gotten ugly fast.

                I think I have a box of those in the stash. I'll make sure to watch the thermometer if I use them. Thanks for the heads up.

                  Damn knowledgeable are you sir. Good thing the Op did not attempt a follow up shot.
