    Why can I see them being recalled then repacked and resold at 3x the value.

    I didn't even know that .22LR was sold in 1000 round packs from manufacturers.

    I don't have any of this stuff, but say you do.

    You send it back. I assume they will reimburse you. You can either get a check, and wander around bumping into things with it until you determine there is no bulk .22 in this state, or they could send you some new stuff. But could they? How does that work with SAFE?

    I understand mistakes are made, but this might REALLY F over NYers that bought this stuff, yet again.

    Yeah I was wondering about that too Darth.

    I have a 1000 round pack I got from Cabelas, luckily not in the batches recalled.

    CLEAR.....my boxes are not in the recall.

    Darth, good insight there. Could also screw over the guy who bought their stash from some gouger and paid more than msrp.

    22LR tops out around 24,000 PSI, I would bet you could reach near 223 levels of pressure with a double charge.

    Too bad they won't exchange it for a brick.

    Well, there's some presumption here that the recompense would be monetary. Maybe it would, but I'm not sure how they'd work that. If, on the other hand, they were simply to be replacing the ammo.. well, that could certainly be a problem for NY residents under the new laws. Just another way SAFE could make us more unSAFE. It really SHOULD be a replacement of the ammo though because everyone having potentially paid absurd prices in the last year or two could be out of luck. Maybe they'd make a refund in MSRP ? Maybe they'd make none if you didn't have a receipt ?

    Someone who has some of this stuff should get on the horn with them and report back how that's going to work before we make any more assumptions.

    Does mailing in defective ammo, and getting new ammo mailed directly back to you meet up to the definition of an ammo transaction?

    I have no idea; that IS the question though. There has always been legal provisions for that with factory firearms repair, but how that might apply to defective ammo post-SAFE .. hmm

    They are 2 500 round packs in an over pack box. They sell a 2000 round pack also.

    I'd hate to bump a really old thread, but did anybody have a recalled bunch and actually send it back to them? If so what did they send you? I have a recalled batch of 1000 and I called them on it right after this was released and they were supposed to send me a shipping label. They never did, so I never really pressed the issue. I don't want to shoot it, but I also don't want to send it back and get a $50 gift card or some crap. Just curious of others experience with how they are handling this recall in NY.
