It is in white boxes. I'll post a pic later.

The paper boxes don't say made in turkey but these boxes were in a green ammo can that did say made in turkey.

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.

Thanks from mtime7

Thx for linky…


Anyone know if this ammo is related to the MKE that was sold via ATI?

IIRC that ATI run of ammo was marketed as built to NATO spec?

I imagine its the same stuff in a different box, I bought a case of the ATI, if I recall it seemed a lttle light to be nato spec. mind you, I didn't have a chrony, just the way it felt

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.
