How the hell would you double charge a 22 and not notice. They are normally pretty full already. At least the ones I have pulled apart in the past.

But thanks for the link. I do not have any of this.

I'm with you on that one Flyer, I know it's all done by machine but someone has to refill the powder hoppers. I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't have some that fired off.

Probably loaded it with the wrong powder (fast burning) which could increase CUP pressure beyond normal limits. Hence the "double charge".

I did not pick up on any real details - but do you think UPS will be dropping off a free box of 22LR to replace the box of defective 22LR that you bought but is too dangerous to shoot? - just asking!

Fortunately, while I am WELL stocked, I don't own any of the "double charge" variety

I have scored a few at Walmart. You have to find out what day they normally get shipments in.

I have a lot of Winchester 22LR, but none in that packaging. I wonder if these are PRE- or POST- Shortage?
