7.62X51 Q3130 good stuff ?
Link Posted: 12/9/2009 3:38:01 PM EDT
I like it, just wish it weren't so damn pricey!  Oh well seems to be the case with everything these days.  Functions well and brass is good.

It's good stuff!

I don't have a chrono but seems pretty hot.

Very strong ejection from my FAL.

However, not as accurate out of my FAL as some other
mil-spec ammo I've used in the past (Aussie & Lithuainian), but good enough.....

16.99 a box at Academy Sports down here in TX.

SHIT...Cabela's KC has it on sale for $13.99 / box. I only had someone grab me 5 boxes thinking $0.70 / rd. was a little too expensive. Looks like I was wrong. She said it was flyin off the shelf.

ETA: You can order it from Cabelas.com and get $20 off or free shipping.

Typical steel jacketed M80 ball spec ammo.  I have much better M1A groups using South African ball.  Otherwise, clean and shoots well.

Q3130 is excellent ammo.  Buy some and give it to me!

So, what is a good price then?  

Note: cabelas lowered the price to $12.99 (buying 8 boxes with 20off100 makes it .55/rd).

For Q3130, I haven't seen much better than ~.65/rd.  With the recent prices, .55/rd is the best i've heard of, but I really haven't done a lot of searching.  I highly doubt you will find Q3130 for anything below .50/rd, but that's just my opinion.

If shipping is reasonable that is a good price .

Shipping on 8 boxes is about $15. I chose in store pickup.

I like 3130, however I think it is too high at 70 cents.  it is a 147 fmj mil spec, so not big deal.  Lots of muck better for a little more.

Got a confirmation OMB shipped today at $12.80 a box .Considering the last time i seen it on the shelves it was $18 a box i am happy with that price .

WOW You got an email huh? I had a back order from 03/21/09 and 04/04/09 respectively that i told them to cancel and they just decided to send me 800 rounds of the stuff, Just what i want at Christmas a credit card bill that is $512.00 bigger.  OMB sux, my left nut will rot off before a pay to ship it back, the shipping is for 25 lbs. My POS credit card company shouldn't have even honored the authorization code because it was nine months old.

Refuse delivery and call the CC to reverse charges.  But, you will be burning a bridge with OMB.

I did get an Email from them yes but it was not labeled as an email from OMB rather it had their salesmans name in the header . And the email stated if i still wanted the BO i needed to call them well I never called them but they shipped it anyway . I can use the ammo so not a big deal. But like you i was suprised they shipped it.

I  Figured since they sell to LE departmens they are used to filling BO as product is available.

I'm going to have to do this, package is already in Richmond,VA as of Friday. According to UPS, the shipper can recall it but as per a stuporvisor at OMB EXPRESS they won't do it because they will be charged $10 a box to do so. Now I have to take a day off from work on Monday and wait for the UPS guy and hopefully intercept him before he takes the packages off the truck, (2 packages at 25 lbs a piece).  Seems like an awful waste of time, once it's back on its way, I'll file the Merchant dispute.  The kicker is I seem to recall asking a customer service rep to cancel the backorders when  they gave me a hard time not honoring free shipping.  
I'VE ORDERED WELL OVER $1500.00 IN GOODS FROM THIS COMPANY OVER HALF A DOZEN TIMES, A SIMPLE PHONE WOULD HAVE AVERTED THIS WHOLE MESS.  To me, they're among the ranks of CHEAPER THAN DIRT and BOTACH.
