OH man I am so glad that wasn't the 45gr Varminter 40rd packs. I would really HATE to send mine back they were too hard to come by in the first place, and the shoot SOOO good too.

And if they're shooting well, they aren't likely to be overstressing your particular gun anyway, even if it is an unintended powder.

Anyone send their recalled ammo back and if so, did they send the replacement ammo yet? I have a case of the stuff that I shot a little of, but was leary to send back until knowing the return time.

Your best source of information will be Winchester.
