I've got 500 rounds of the recalled ammo. I sent them an email requesting replacement ammo instead of a refund and also asking who pays for the return shipping. We'll see what there response is.

I've been through a couple of these in the past with other companies. In general, they don't ship replacement ammo back anymore due to the varied laws throughout the country. Easier to send you a check. Usually they send you a prepaid label you slap on the box for your return. Or, they just add the shipping reimbursement to your refund check. The refund is typically based on the full retail price of the ammo...and will factor in your local taxes, so you make out fine.

Back when they would send you replacement ammo, Remington was very generous in sending considerably more than I returned.

Just received this today from Norma:

Please find the recall form available on Normashooting.com. Scroll down the webpage to the bottom where you will see the information section, click Safety Warning and Recall Notices to submit your recall request. We will email you a prepaid return label. You will receive a refund and discount code once ammo is received. Unfortunately there is no replacement at this time.
Apologies for your inconvenience.

At least I know they'll pay for the return shipping

Update:
Norma sent me a prepaid return shipping label. Within 2 days of them receiving the ammo back, I received a full refund.

I would think someone could have inspected their rounds for proper neck tension instead of just shipping them back?

Just for everyone's info, I checked two of the ten 50 round boxes and found 7 rounds that I could physically push the bullet into the case by hand. That's why I sent the ammo back. It wasn't worth risking damage to my firearms and myself. togor and RVN 69-70 should have asked before making assumptions.

It was a question. Asked and answered.

Had some cheap Rem 9mm with the same problem. But there was no recall and the pistols didn't care one way or the other.
