HODGDON POWDER COMPANY, INC.
SMOKELESS POWDER

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: LIL’ GUN SMOKELESS POWDER – 1 LB. CONTAINER, LOT NUMBER: 013080221

WARNING: Hodgdon Powder Company, Inc. has determined that a small number of one pound (1 lb.) containers of
Hodgdon’s LIL’ GUN smokeless powder may create excessive pressures in firearms when loaded in cartridges and/or shotshells using standard loading data. Such a condition, if present, may cause personal injury to the user and/or bystander and damage to the firearm. Users should immediately cease using this product and return it to Hodgdon Powder Co. as instructed below:

Dear Customer: There was an error in the last press release sent on Saturday
April 12, 2003. The lot number of Lil'Gun® that is being recalled is Lot#
103080221, and NOT 013080221, which is an error and does not correspond to any
real lot number. The corrected press release is reproduced below for your
convenience. The lot number may be found on a sticker on the bottom of the
powder bottle.
