Interesting, I have the Champion WM5233, but a different lot #. That ammo would not cycle my FNP-45T with the Gemtech Blackside on it. I wonder it it has anything to do with the recall...

Thanks for this. I just checked, we don't have either brand right now so no recall worries.

That is why most of us reload. If the need arises to invent new cuss words we have ourselves to blame unless the powder was marked or manufactured wrong.

No problem. I just figured that was pretty important to get out. I don't personally know many of you guys and gals but would hate to hear of something bad. I shoot a ton and if you all are anything like me you grab a case and hit the range. I got this information hot off the line since it happened here locally before federal even had it on their web site. I would have been a real ass to not stop what I was doing and post this right away to either prevent any injuries, property damage or potentially save someone's life. Have a great weekend everyone. :thumb:
