Winchester Ammunition announced a warning and issued a recall of certain kinds of 5.56 NATO ammo last week.  The ammunition in question possibly contains the wrong propellant, which might cause damage to the firearm and injury to the shooter.

The recalled ammo is the Winchester M855 62 grain penetrator with a symbol number of ZGQ3308 and a lot number of WCC10M106-004.  These numbers can be found on the 900-round case box and individual 30-round boxes.
