Think you have affected ammo? Here’s how to check:

A case of ammo will have the lot number stenciled on the side of the case. If you have a box of ammo, the lot number will be stamped on the inside flap of the box.

If you have determined you have a defective lot, stop using the ammunition immediately!

Call Barnes Bullets’ customer service department and let them know your ammo is part of their voluntary recall. They will pay for and arrange return shipment. Once they receive your shipment, they will immediately send out replacement ammo.
