This is a discussion on ZQ1 or ZQ ammo 7.62x51 from turkey at walmart within the Ammunition forums, part of the M14 M1A Forum category; Anyone know if the above ammo is any good ?
It is in white boxes. I'll post a pic later.
The paper boxes don't say ...
I just bought some today and it shoots really well, but it seems to be a SNUG fit when chambering. I'm shooting a Sig Sauer SSG 3000 and every single round is definitely snug when locking the bolt forward. I will say though that it is pretty accurate and I wouldn't mind buying more... just wish I knew why it was so damn tight. I've never run into that with any other type of ammo, and trust me, I've tried almost every time of .308, 7.62x51, that I can find. For the money though, I normally get the Norma USA TAC-308 box of 50 for $51.00 at Cabela's. Love it
MKE headstamp, seems to shoot the same as white box Winchester. Went to the range to day and fired off win white box, fed xm80c, pmc bronze, q1, and will post the results along with the dreaded i4895 loads.
As a side note I had some of this in 5.56, and it shot and reloads well.
I picked up some of this ZQ ammo at Walmart here in North NewYorkastan for $17.95 bx.Just tried a partial box thru my rifle.Function was fine with better than average accuracy for the hurry i was in.Then the rain came and spoiled my shoot.(it was 37 degrees and ground is frozen.)The brass is boxer primed and the ammo shot as clean as anything else.I also found it shot 2.5" high as compared to my other loads.Nowhere on the box did I find what weight bullet,but the back of box states made in Turkey.
I shot 5rnds of it yesterday that my brother bought for his AR10. Shot really well, 2ish MOA with irons. Didnt do exact measurement cause there were holes all over the paper from other ammo i tried. Cycled well, stunk like hell though. It has crimped primers also.
