>>28550652 Got some about a year ago, shot it and it was pretty accurate, clean burning too. Can't remember how accurate it was since it was so long since I've seen some on the shelf at my local Wally World. Only complaint is the primers are crimped in (I reload).
The 7.62x51 is garbage, I bought some just to fuck around with in a bolt gun from prone with a bipod and it was about 7-8 MOA compared to better stuff that was getting 1-2. I'm not the best shot but it was absurd how much spread I was getting.
>>28551080 No, I'm using a flathead screwdriver, I guess I'm a little too aggressive while doing it, I have no problems with non crimped primers though. Right now I want to get the basics down pat then start cutting down the 5.56 brass to make 300 blk.
>>28550851 Damn, you must have been doing something wrong.
>>28550652 I love this ammo for range time OP. I get groups as good, (aka tight), as ammo 3x the price; and I get it for $9.32 a box for 20 for 7.62x51 at walmart: can't say anything about the 5.56 though. Shooting from a SCAR 17. Never had any malfunctions with it, and it seems to burn clean when I clean my rifle after using it. Wish gunstores around here had it; I only ever see it at wally's world.
>>28551206 What part of the country are you anon? All the Wally Worlds in my area sold out of the ZQI last year when the XM855/ss109 ban was proposed by the BATF, and none ever returned to the shelves.
>>28551277 Gotcha. I've been doing a lot of reading and watching video demos of brass cutting jigs but still end up confused on what is the best solution out there. What jig do you use for trimming the case as well as do you anneal your brass before forming the new neck?
>>28550817 >>28551530 I was doing the math. The Federal XM855 was around 42¢/rd and the ZQI came out to be 43¢/rd. The 30 pack was $12.97. For that price, I'd stick with the Federal because I know I can convert the cases to 300 BLK.
When they put it on clearance, it was $10.00, and was gone before I could get any.
>>28551232 My local Walmart & Dick's got those 150ct xm855 green boxes back last summer. Dick's actually had a sale at one point so they were $60 instead of $75. They're not always available but they are more common than 22.
Anyone trythat Denel orange box ammo? They have 223 and 7.62x51. It's pricy but I'm tempted because seuth eefreeken zef shit.
I can believe someone else got 7-8 moa out of it. Shot ZQI through a DAMS recon, 24 MOA at 25 yards. Switched to FGMM, one hole. Some batches have been shit. This was 2 years ago. Before it got popular.
>>28553685 My local Walmart has the XM855 green boxes as well, but paying .46 cents a round, naw man. Here's something I found out recently, sometimes Wally World will ship ammo to stores that usually don't stock that particular kind, for example I found two stores that had the 150 count XM193 for about $55, quick math and we get just under .37 cents a round, that I can live with.
>>28554719 > freedom munitions Shittiest ammo I ever used. I feel like they should have paid me to run that ammo through my guns. I've got 200 rounds of their .223 sitting in my closet and I'm debating shooting it all to get it over with or just donating it to charity to save myself the grief. I would declare jihad if I were a savage muslim.
>>28554719 I got a box of 250 rounds of SS109 5.56mm from Ventura Munitions for pretty cheap, $87 plus shipping.
They shipped it Monday, I got it yesterday all the way from Las Vegas, so pretty good shipping.
Looks like quality stuff, and they seem to have great prices on all their ammo. They factory reload stuff, have standard factory ammo, and their own brand (which is what I bought) has excellent reviews.
Soon as my foot's not broken and I can get time to go shooting, I can vouch for the ammo quality, but the fit and finish of the bulk ammo seems legit.
>>28550851 I used to think it was shit because I was getting 3-4 MOA with my scar17s, then i got a new mount for my optic and started getting about 1-1.5 MOA. Runs clean and accurate. Kind of sad my walmart is all out of it. I have about 700 rounds of it though.
>>28550652 I haven't shot the 5.56, but the 9mm and 7.62 NATO are great. Considering it's literally just military stock ammo packaged for export, it should be good stuff. I mean that literally; MKE does not differentiate between military and civilian loads when manufacturing.
>>28555156 Because Tula is 50/50 dog poop and sawdust. Remington powder and brass are fine, but the seating dies in their factory are fucking rabid. Last box of ammo I ever bought from them was 9mm, and I measured a seating depth variance of almost an 1/8th of an inch.
>>28550652 It works fine, its range ammo if anything. It used to be sorta priced alright, but ZQI decided they wanted double to triple the amount it used to cost and most stores that carried it stopped bothering and canceled their agreements with ZQI
>>28556075 I still see the 7.62 at my walmart, but I bought a 640 case in AIM for a good price, and have only one box of 9mm I'm holding onto right now. Though I haven't seen the 5.56 or anything past 55gr. in a little while.
