Got a message from Hodgdon on my email yesterday saying that they are having a recall on a certain batch of Lil'gun.

Ladobe,
Maybe you will also post the NEW message from Hodgdon that I got this morning. The lot number of the defected Lil'gun powder that was given was not the correct lot number. You folks who use this powder should check again for the correct lot number

I saw a copy of an email Hogdon sent to a lister on the TC List. Ladobe's message has the correct lot number for the recalled lot.

Thanks Tony D....

The lot number in my above post IS the correct one. Where the confusion came that generated the second post from Hodgdon, is the original post had the lot number listed twice (see above), and the top one had the "0" and "1" transposed. I have corrected the top lot number on the above post to make both places match.
