WARNING! KNOW THE AMMUNITION YOU ARE USING

Pre-1999 Remington Copper Solid Ammunition is not recommended for use in
Hastings Barrels.

We at Hastings are concerned about customer safety. Our barrels are manufactured
using the highest quality steel and modern production methods. Each barrel is
independently proof tested, and we have a consistant history of safety and superior
performance.

We have observed that some of Hastings' replacement barrels have been damaged
when customers used pre-1999 Remington Copper Soilid Sabot Ammunition with the
specifications below:

Index/EDI
No.
Gauge
Shell
Length
Slug
Weight
PR 12 MAG
RS
12 ga.
3"
1 3/16 oz.
PR 12 RS
12 ga.
2 3/4"
1 oz.

Damage has occured after varying numbers of rounds were fired, causing some
barrels to bend. Damage has been seen among the following Hastings Products:

Hastings manufactures many interchangable replacement barrels for pump and
automatic guns. The original manufacturer's design for some barrels require thin
walls to achieve light weight and balance. We believe the design of the above
Remington Solid Sabot Ammunition causes some of the thin-walled barrels to bend.

We do not recommend the use of the pre-1999 ammunition in any Hastings product.
Hastings will not be responsible for any damage incurred while using this ammunition.
If you are in doubt about the age of identity of your ammunition, stop and seek
professional advice before proceeding to use any Remington Copper Solid
Ammunition in your Hastings shotgun barrel. Although the damage reported to date is
bending of the barrel, this is no assurance that even more serious damage or injury
could not occur. For this reason, you should know that you are assuming any such risks
if you use the pre-1999 ammunition in Hastings barrels.

ATTENTION
This warning DOES NOT apply to the New Generation 1999 Remington Copper Solid
Ammunition listed below:
Index/EDI
No.

Shell
Length
Slug
Weight
PR 12 MCS
12 ga.
