Found some Q3131A Winchester (IMI) 5.56mm FMJ, 55gr at a local dealer today. Got it for $202/case 1000. Is that a pretty decent deal? It's packaged in 20 round boxes and looks like some good stuff. The original charge was $19X.XX so after tax it came out to $202.

I'm thinking about going up and buying another case and maybe some of the XM193 he has in stock. He said he would do $4.25/box on the XM193 if I bought his last 37 boxes.

Should I go snatch some more up?

For 202.00 OTD..

I would scarf it up...

How about the price per box on the xm193? Is that a good deal?

I think I will pick up another case of Q3131A, but I'm still debating on the XM193 in 20 round boxes.

I'm guessing you are not in the N.Ky area? If you are...

WHERE THE HELL DID YOU FIND THAT!!!

Seriously, its not that its such a wonderful price (it's not bad either) but I can't imagine any place in this area carrying Q3131A or XM193 in case quantities and at a fair price none-the-less!

Sorry, I'm not in northern KY. I'm in eastern KY. I realize that it's not a great price (just checked out the pricing thread) but I too was REALLY suprised to find a local store that carried both Q3131A and XM193 in cases/boxes. Everything at this store is way overpriced except for the ammo that I got a quantity break on. Wolf .223 ammo is $150+tax/case at this store!

Not trying to be too much of an ass here, but I'm gonna keep the place a secret until I get what I need for my stockpile.

All you had to do was read the price list and find you got a decent deal... Both of your questions are easily answered. I just dont get why people post threads telling us they found ammo locally and bought all of it. What good is telling us that going to do for the forum?

I found a local gunstore that was selling the Win. Q3131 no A stuff with headstamp 1994, so I was a little skittish on buying them for 5 buck each. So for shits&grins I bought 2 boxes went to the range and did some ammo testing to see if it was good stuff or not, kid you not but the ammo shot so accurate and consistant at 100 yards I went back and bought the rest of it on his shelf which happens to be 53 boxes.

He ended up dropping the price to 4.50 a box for the lot. So I did not know if I was doing the right thing buying at that price but I had that they were so accurate in my mind I thought it was the right thing to do. I'm glad I bought them because I use them when I know I'm going to do some 100+ yard shooting.

Each trip to the range I load up 2 30 rounders of the Q3131 stuff and the rest of the ammo i bring is cheap plinking stuff. The Q3131 stuff is like gold to me so I use it sparingly. I found that the new Wolf (polymar) 55 gr. stuff works very,very well out of my AR. Just last week I started using it.

wow, I have a local gun shop here that is selling it 165 + tax per 1000 rounds. I picked up a case last week for 179 I think. I think I better get some more.

I wanted opinions from people if they thought it was a good enough deal to go get more, not that I bought all they had. What good does it do for the forum to post your gripes with a thread? Are people not supposed to ask questions? I thought that was the purpose of a forum. To ask questions, post information, and to have a good time.

There is a simple solution for you repub18 and your gripes, next time don't look.

y advertise if your not gonna share

You really want to know where cruze5? Only reason I don't want to tell is because I'm sure someone will go and buy all of it up before I get a chance to buy a little more.

If you want to know where, IM me and I'll let you know.

I found some Q3131A (~20-40 boxes) at Dicks in Salt Lake City. At $5/box + tax + I'd need to haul it on the airlines I decided to let it sit.

But I did post it out in the Utah Hometown forum. (hint, hint)

This IS the ammo forum. I think we all know the answer to this question.

I just ran across some Q3131a in michigan today at Jays sporting goods in Clare..
Boxed on the shelf,and it was 4.13 per box with a 10 box buy..Not great , but I was so very surprised to see any at all that I bought 50 boxes..

There are probably 20+ boxes left on the shelf if any of you "near by" guys are around.
