We then pulled the bullet of a dud round, poured out the powder, and examined the primer material. Our discovery was there was almost no primer material with most areas, none at all.

I have been buying box after box of mostly duds because our local stores sell the old crap ammo. Notices to the stores has resulted in nothing.

I contacted Winchester and gave them the details and am waiting for their decision as for my problem. I have 10 or 11 boxes of the worthless fodder I can't depend upon.
Dang buddy, I hate to hear this about your ammo! Keep me posted, At least the squirrels are the only ones happy right now!

That is strange, since we all know they make it too! I wonder what the reasoning is behind that statement?

Thanks, ricky! She spent Tuesday through yesterday in hospitals but I got her home last night and all seems good. They did some more heart work on her.

I worked Monday and Tuesday and then found her in our local band-aid station when I got home from work. The hospital tried to call but my cell phone was turned off because of my job.

I hope you are killing a lot of dastardly squirrels!

take the ammo back and get a refund, not fit for use.

I put 400 rounds thru my 17WSM and a mate has recently put 400 rounds thru it also and in total we have had only 1 round fail to go off but it did on the 2nd strike

American Eagle 20gr by far the most accurate and reliable ammo out there.

Thanks, Al! She's getting better. They added 3 more stents and repaired a tear in an artery close to her heart, plus removed a clot. She has 27 stents.

I also contacted Savage and they are sending the parts kit to change out the old style safety on my BMAG.

I hope Winchester doesn't send a voucher for the bad ammo because the stores here all sell the old lot crap fail to fire ammo. I would rather receive replacement ammo from Winchester.

I'd call em up then. All they sent me were free coupons.

Thanks, ricky and Al! I received my free safety upgrade kit for my BMAG and am going to have it installed this weekend. And hope to unleash the rifle upon some dastardly squirrels.

I had the same problem with 17hmr ammo a few years ago. Mine was because I could see that the Savage rifle was not hitting the case very hard. My problem started when I left the rifle cocked for a long period of time and it weakened the spring driving the firing pin.
I took the bolt apart and streched the spring /2 in. Worked for awhile,problem returned. Called Savage to get a new spring, they would not sell it to me. I found out that Savage springs do this quite often.
I got rid of the gun and bought a CZ gun. Now I always undock thei tiring pin when I store all my guns. Bolt guns are easy to undock without dry firing them. Not going through all that again.

Update on bad ammo, I sent them the info and they kept asking for the same info so I placed a call to a fella called Bruce but had to leave a message. I received no call-back so I finally said to hell with it.

I am going to order some (hopefully) newer ammo from another source. Winchester customer service sucks.
