I bought some of this Winchester/IMI stuff at a gunshow (right photo):
www.cougarridgetradingpost.com/223ammo.htm

Is it "Grade A"?  Was wondering since there's no X prefix on the box.  Thee ammo looks and shoots really good too but it's pricey.

I prefer Q loads over retail packaging. I'm very interested in Q3131 and Q3269 of recent manufacture. Just maybe a little cheaper.

Ahh..Thanks!

BTW, some asked how much I paid.  I'm almost emberassed to tell I paid ~$7 a box (just bought 6 boxes at the time though).

OK, now I am REALLY confused!

I went to the link for cougar trading post.  They show Q3131, 55 gr M193 ammunition that is NEW, manfuctured in 2005.

DOes ANYONE know the story behind this?  I thought Q3131 Q3131A was history.  That IMI was no longer making it for Winchester.  Did Winchester get a new subcontractor?

Yes the price is abit more than we were used to paying 12-18 months ago for Q3131A.

If anyone knows the real story, please share...

Thanks
