Called macks and they told me the wads can break and get stuck in gun on temps below freezing.
Now tomorrow will be 60 degrees. Wouldu try them? Or still too risky? They could have been shipped to macks in a truck below freezing right?

The hevimetal letter said not to use those with the at risk lot numbers. Return is free so I would not use them.

My email response to mack customer service email:

I called the store and of course macks blamed hevishot for filling their shelves yesterday. Well if i was manager at macks i would not have allowed hevishot to pile up macks shelves with recalled amo. What a huge mistake from macks part. The guy at macks said: well, am i supposed to open every box to check recall nr? I said: no dont do it, we would rather have customers blow their guns or get insured....

Found out i have anoter case of recallers at home. The batch number is stamped on the case, so no need to open boxes individually. Will return both cases monday.

Its like a never ending recall, pretty cool
