Somebody asked me what lot I had problems with Winchester Q13131 5.56 55 FMJ ammunition.

It is LOT WL 71.

That might have been the same Lot I almost key word almost bought a couple weeks back. All the brass had different markings, they were dirty (had some pink powder on them around the primers), biggest of all one of the projectiles was actualy warped, there were no signs of force looked like it was taken out of the mold to soon. I know I hear everyone praise this ammo, but that kinda turned me away from it. Atleast for now.

Your the wind beneath my wings, markm... so simple, but like a hammer to a nail.

It would take me half the day to correct all the incorrect info in that reply. Let alone all of the grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors. Sometimes you just have to give them the BIG TARD certification!

You're right looking over my spelling I miss spelt one word "actually". I was only explaining it best that I could. So how is the info incorrect if I saw it with my own eyes?

Getting back on topic. I do believe that was the same lot # I almost bought my self.

I'm not questioning what you saw. Your interpretation is the problem. I don't want to open the whole can of worms here, as all of this has been covered extensively already.

In short... Q3131 is comparable to XM193.

I'm more interested in what the author's problems were with the ammo.

failures to feed and eject

I kept having jams with it.

Hmmm.. I have a couple of boxes that I just picked up. I'll have to check the lot number and function test them.
