yeah, Q3131, not Q3131A. Mfg'd 1991, Winchester White Box.

Is this ammo better than 3131A? Is it like gold I should save for future SHTF scenarios or just enjoy it and shoot it all up? I have about 240 rds of it

Only if Q3131 makes you shoot truer and/or better prepares you mentally to kill somebody.

I don't believe I'm ill armed with freshly made Q3131A as long as I do my part. Like Steve of Adco said, get lots of ammo and practice. It's the best thing to do for SHTF.

I love the OLD Q3131 and I think its as hot or hotter as XM193!

I pulled 2 bullets each!

THERES ALWAYS DEVIATION So I didnt bother pulling 30rds each!

Used Elec Dillon scale

M193 spec WC844 26.5grs
M855 26.1grs WC844

Q3131 powder was 26.2grs
Q3131a 25.8grs

South African 2 rounds head stamp 88-13 26.2 just like Q3131

Whats weird is the M855/SS109 Same as Q3131/SA 26.2grs and all the rounds match there brother

And 2 rounds each of
Santa Barbra SS109 26.2grs
Lake City 98 M855 26.2grs

Also WIN LINK M855 2 pulled 27.1grs

This was just for fun at home! and to give me a clue I know some Ballistic Expert will panic!
