This is a recall on Alliant Unique powder in certain lot numbers in 8lb jugs. The jugs 'may' contain Bullseye powder.
Go to the link to check the lot numbers against your stock.

Bang or BIG Boom?

Well, the site says 8 pound kegs only. Hopefully someone has not bought one of the bad lot cans and divided it.


This recall is several years old now but I would still check lot numbers. Sad

I'm in good shape KW
I just went to me reloading room to make sure that the Unique was not Bullseye. Now I'm heading to the Range to give it a try.

Thanks Coyote for the update.
I wasn't going to shoot my reloads until I had that one checked out.

Man--That was one bad mistake that was made.
Like KW said, a guys life insurance better be up to date with that SNAFU.
