    ZQ 5.56 ammo

    Come in to a few 30 round boxes of this today. It looks like quality build, good brass and bullet , and made in Turkey.

    Anyone know or have any experience with it ?

    No, I keep seeing it at Wal-Mart and keep hoping someone would give a review.

    Same here. Watched a guy buy a 1000 round can at Wally World. Asked him what he knew about it. Said he had never heard of it before, but at the price was willing to risk it. Anxiously waiting to hear whether it is any good or not.

    I have never shot any of it (yet), but I'm seeing a lot of 5.56, 7.62x51, and 9mm in Wally world, usually outrageously priced.

    I bought a couple of boxes of the 9mm on Friday, because I thought I was going to be going to the range before I went home and that's all they had, but I ended up not going. One thing that really surprised me was when I realized that NOWHERE on the box does it show a bullet weight! It does say that it meets NATO specs, and I'm kind of assuming that it's 124 gr., but have no way of knowing for sure, without pulling (or shooting) a bullet and weighing it. Could be anywhere from 108 to 128 gr.

    Rumor has it that it's pretty good ammo, but I won't ordinarily pay what they're asking, for range ammo!

    Reviews I have read seem to have issues with failed primers. Second hand info , taken from a big AR site.

    All I know is that it's WAY over priced and the local Wally's are having a hard time moving it since they regularly get Tula, Winchester and even Federal is coming back.

    How much are you guys paying for 7.62 x 51 brass ammo?

    The Walmarts here had the ZQ on sale through 4/1 for $14.97/box of 20 rounds. I bought a few boxes to try because all I can find at that price is steel cased, and I don't like to shoot steel. I have not had a chance to try it, so no review yet.

    Same with the 7.62x51; I assume it's 150 gr FMJ.

    +1 for grossly over priced. It just sits on the shelf around here.

    I've been paying about $13/box for PPU, Federal AE, or PMC. The ZQ1 I've seen was almost twice that - something like $24.97.

    If they had it here for $15, I'd be buying some now & then.

    Well here it's priced at 13 bucks for a 30 round box. Seems like the rest of you are getting hosed.

    That would make it useless for me! I kinda would like to know what weight bullet I am sending down range.

    No, it 5.56. But 30 rounds for 13 bucks isn't too bad, considering.

    I know this is an old thread.
    But here in NW WA a 30 round box of 5.56 brass-cased ZQ1 is going for 10$.
    Not a bad price.

    This here..... Not the cheapest but I picked up 200 rnds of federal .556 ball for $75 bucks...much cheaper than the ZQ stuff
