Is the Winchester Q3131 bette than the Federal M193??

If all the Federal is second quality?

Is the Winchester Q3131 that we get first quality? Meeting all the specks? right neck and primer sealent, right velocity, etc.

Would that make the Winchester a better value?

Thanks,

Check Ammo tacked threads and you will find your answer and maybe many more

Thanks for all of the replys.

I have read the tacked ammo threads - that is where I learned that all of the Federal M193 being sold to us civies is second "tier" ammo.

What I wanted to confrim and ask is that the Winchester Q3131 that we can buy is the first quality meeting all of the m193 specks - velocity, neck sealent etc.

Thanks,

Don't have a preference for the ammo, they're both great - but Lake City brass is the best, period. It resizes, trims, chamfers, decrimps, decaps, primes better than Winchester mil brass. Easiest and best cases to deal with from a handloading perspective.

Win Q3131 is better if you get a better deal on it.
Federal XM193 is better if you get a better deal on it.
