Default Winchester/Olin M855 Ammo Recall

I just wanted to take a moment and commend Winchester on their customer service. I purchased 900 rounds of M855 on stripper clips from Midway last year and received a notice in February about a recall due to excessive pressures.

I was not too keen on sending back 810 rounds (90 rounds and my AR is still intact) especially in this environment. When I called the rep, I was given two options: 1.) 1,000 rounds of M855 but not on stripper clips or 2.) 2,000 rounds of 5.56 55 gr. FMJ.

No brainer. I shipped the ammunition back on March 11 and received my 2,000 rounds today.

Below is the link to the recall:
