I just received an e-mail from Midway about a recall on the 130 grain 6.5 Gamechanger bullets. Apparently some .277 bullets got mixed in with the 6.5’s. They have the lot numbers listed of the involved boxes. Just letting everyone know. Thank you
...but now that I sit here thinking about it, I'm gonna go measure the remaining 75, JUST IN CASE?!Yesterday morning, Midway email notification was apparently wrong and this morning's, was/is the corrected version! My box is NOT the contaminated lot. Good thing, I had already shot 25 of them!
Have to agree here I have several 257 Bob A.I.s and two 6.5/257 Bob A.I.s. With only 6 or 7 thousands difference in bullets with those two there is no way to chamber the 6.5 in the .257 without a 2 lb. hammer! I tried to chamber one (without the hammer) to prove to myself that me or my family never would make a catastrophic mistake like that.I suspect you would know that something was wrong as soon as you tried to seat one. And, I seriously doubt that a .277 bullet accidentally seated in a piece of brass intended for a .264 bullet would chamber.
However, it's best not to test my suspicions.
