Remington Ammo Recall

Remington Ammunition has issued an official safety recall notice for three lots of Core-Lokt Tipped Remington .300 Win. Mag. cartridges. Bullet weight is 180 grains and affected lot numbers are N16OCA373, N17OAA373 and N22OCA373. Use of this product may result in firearm damage and/or personal injury. Enthusiasts with these loads should, in an abundance of safety, discontinue their use immediately and determine whether their cartridges are included this safety notification.

Remington Ammunition has determined that certain boxes in those lots may contain cartridges loaded with an incorrect propellant. None of the company’s other .300 Win. Mag Core-Lokt Tipped lot codes are affected by this notice.

The recall applies only to Remington Core-Lokt Tipped – 300 Win Mag 180-grain ammunition, index number RT300WC. The part number is 29038 and lot codes are N16OCA373, N17OAA373 or N22OCA373.

The product lot codes are found on the inside flap of the individual box or along the outside of a product case. No other lots are affected by this issue. The company also posted a convenient resource to help owners can find the lot, part and index numbers on cartons and individual boxes on the official recall webpage.  

Enthusiasts who possess ammunition from any of these lots, need to immediately discontinue use of this ammunition and contact Remington by phoning (800) 243-9700. The company’s Consumer Service Department will arrange for the return shipment of the affected ammunition and, upon receipt, will send you replacement cartridges at no cost.

The company’s Sept. 12 safety notice apologizes for any inconvenience it may cause owners.
