    I just missed these lots, thankfully. I hear they are sending out checks as compensation... a check doesn't do me any good when you take something from me that took 3 months to find.

    How do you fit a double charge in a .22 lr?

    F-around! I have to go home and check my 1,000 round boxes. Hopefully I dont have this run of ammo. Pisses me off that we get a check though if it is the bad stuff.....they should send us the ammo.
