ZQ ammunition at Walmart

Has anyone heard of this brand? I saw at Walmart 7.62x51 brass at $18 a box. Thanks

It should come with a free blow-job at that price.

I didn't get my blow-job, so I guess that means it doesn't suck.

You didn't buy three boxes. I did.

I've read somewhere that it was made in Turkey, and that Walmart also sells .223 / 5.56mm ZQ.

Exactly my thoughts, especially when the same money will buy you over 1000 rounds of Federal/LC

Ok, some pics. Big if you have a slow connection

This one I thought was funny

Winchester on the right

Notice the Win is crimped around the bullet, the ZQ isnt.
No clue how that will affect anything. When I get a chance to shoot them we'll see I guess.

I got an email flyer this morning from BPI, showing Federal .223 for 30 cents a pop in 1000 round lots. That ain't to bad if you are needing poodle shooter ammo.

I almost broke my finger getting over there. 399.99 a thousand plus shipping is 40+ cents

Oops, my bad. I have gotten so many of those email flyers lately, BPI, CTD, etc. Too many numbers in my head.

I took advantage of the flat rate shipping of $8.99 and ordered 36,000 12 ga wads. Had a real deal of on one for a penny a wad, and couldn't get them to deal with me on another I was interested in. So when this flat rate offer popped up, I loaded up for the next year or three. That saved over $100 in shipping on these big unwieldy boxes.

After reading this thread, yesterday, I happened to notice my Wal*Mart had three or four 50 caliber-sized cans of this Turkish ammo in 9mm for sale.

1200 rounds per can. New production, priced at $497.00 per can.

Overpriced. I just grab the Tula 308 Win for $9 a box instead. Works just fine if I don't want to use my reloads.

The local WM hasn't sold a single box to my eye. I'll pass until the red price tags start appearing.

Please don't be sugesting folks shoot steel cased ammo in their FALs.
There are proven issues.
shoot it yourself it you choose but theres new folks here who haven't got to reading the posts on the blown up rifles and case head seperations. Theres also blowing out mag bottoms, due to the steel NOT expanding like the soft brass, to seal the chamber/case wall from the 50,000 cup gas pressure when ya touch it off.
Might get away with it 99 out of 100 times or more-but eventualy numbers will catch-up with ya.
I shoot steel in my AKs ,SKs's , but only brass in my Fals, SLR and L1A1s.
I already had a case of wolf 308 purchased after getting my first fal-
Its burried out there somewhere, cause not long after someone blew up their fal using wolf.
Nuff for me- religated it to bolt action use only.
