Alright, figured it was my turn to gloat. BassPro has "owed" me a case (2 actually) of Q3131 @ $5.99 per box. Well, after much bitching (long story) they finally came through with their "last 50 boxes" @ $6.99 a piece. I bitched some more and they agreed to let me have it at $4.99 per box!!! They even tried to charge me for 42 boxes instead, but I told them otherwise so it woudn't bite me in the ass down the road. (I don't need anymore BS right now.) I didn't even look at the shit, I just paid and ran laughing all the way. When I got to the trunk I noticed the box said "Isreal" and I about shit myself. Sure enough, Q3131A with 06 headstamps. There was a sticker on the box that said something to the effect of "Armorment munitions, intended only for delivery to a Federal penal institution. To be delivered only to the armorment officer." Didn't notice that on my last case of Q3131...??? Either way, I know I got lucky and hope there is more out there for the rest of us. I know I've tried everything within 200 miles of here and can't find shit. I've never been able to find anything other than Q3131 before so I was glad to see it was Q3131A for a change.

Don't worry, there is absolutely no more Q3131 or Q3131A at BassPro online or even in the store front's distribution center. Check the shelves if your feeling LUCKY.

Nice score! I snagged a case last summer at $2.47 a box. Great stuff!

What that means is that you STOLE that ammo and the police are now going to come and arrest you, and then send you to that 'Federal penal institution'.

Nice deal. I was in Bass Pro (Macon, GA) a few weeks ago and didn't see any Winchester there at the time. The only FMJ I recall seeing was the Remington stuff...

I hate you

I just seriously miss buying 40 round boxes of winchester white box at Wal-Mart for $7.00/box.
Link Posted: 4/19/2007 1:34:59 PM EDT
Ha, that's no deal. I got a case of Q3131A for $218 delivered...that was August of 04 though

Nice Score.

Excellent Score! It seems like Oregon has never heard of Q3131A. I have never seen it anywhere.

Guys, you need to learn what "score" actually means. I got a hell of deal on 2 cases of Q3131A in 05' I believe it was. $1.99/box 20rds. Funny thing is, USA223R1 was $2.99/box and I only bought 500rds (out of maybe 1500)...

can i see a pic of that sticker please

I remember passing on Q3131A at $176 per k in 2004, because I thought it was too high.

Of course, at that time there was plenty of XM193 to be had at $160 per k.

I actually thought about keeping the box, but I tossed it...along with the sticker.

Cabela's at Hamburg, Pa. has or had some Q3131A for $7.00 a box. I didn't get any, that's too much!

There was probably about 800 rounds in 20 round boxes loosely on the shelf.


I was surprised to see any at all.

I'd be surpised if that lasts until tomorrow since you posted on arfcom.

I think a new requirement for anyone boasting about ammo deals should be a scanned picture of the DATED receipt. Otherwise I'm calling bullshit from now on...

My local gun store has 3131a for 379/1000

yes.......that's right........that's a 3.........

fucking insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The wife and I both just got Cabelas discount coupons in the mail that can only be used at the retail stores in MN, NE and Hamburg, PA. Even though we just made a pilgrimmage a month ago, we're headed down to Hamburg again tomorrow (30% discounts are good even on Cabelas overpriced stuff). I have a Hornady Lock n Load AP on hold and I figure each box of Q3131A I pick up will only cost me approx. $4.90. That's about as good as one can do buying 5.56 ammo in today's world.

If you need to hide your ammo from the police who are going to arrest you, you can send it my way, i"ll give it a good home...

Dude,
That's some bad ammo. Do NOT use that in any of your weapons.
Send it to me, and I will dispose of it, for a small fee.
Link Posted: 4/23/2007 10:56:30 AM EDT
Due to the .223 / 5.56 confusion, BassPro has replaced Q3131/A with USA223R1...from now on.
Link Posted: 4/23/2007 10:59:50 AM EDT
And to think I picked up 10,000 rounds at $38.00 a case about 5 years ago due to a pricing error.

When the first case came up, I told the guy at the register to get a hand cart, becasue I was going to buy every case the store had.

So basically you admit on a public website that you stole ammunition? If you knew it was a pricing error you should have said something. Perhaps also you need to ask the store if you can make things right.


Ok- I was just busting your balls, I would have taken every case they had for that price also!
