Got a couple old bolties that might be up to the task.

Hold my beer... I'm going for duct tape and some rebar wire...

Big difference when you're loading 100 rounds a month versus loading 100,000 a day. Halve the volume of powder, and you're probably halving your powder costs. A couple of cents per round adds up to some real money when you're loading that many rounds a day.

For those who might not have checked their stocks of .22 ammo yet, I just wanted to point out that if you have some of the recalled ammo - you only have to call their number to schedule a FREE UPS Pick-Up of the ammo (and likely replacement ammo on the same truck):
To determine if your ammunition is subject to this notice, review the Symbol Number and Lot Number. If it is Symbol Number S22LRT with a Lot Number containing GD42L or GD52L immediately discontinue use and contact Winchester toll-free at 866-423-5224 or visit ... ct-Us.aspx for free UPS pick-up of the recalled ammunition.
I'm guessing the word hasn't been getting out too well 'cause they have a 1/2 page ad in the latest American Rifleman magazine (May 2014, on page 46). They WANT those lots back (and I can't blame them)!

A person properly schooled in right and wrong is safe with any weapon. A person with no idea of good and evil is unsafe with a knitting needle, or the cap from a ballpoint pen.

I remain pessimistic given the way BATF and the anti gun crowd have become tape worms in the guts of the Republic. - toad

I'm gonna guess that like every other ammo recall, that's not applicable in Alaska.
