I get that 3131A is good, but can someone give me the scoop on 3131 (issues, good or bad).
Some wholesalers say its the same, others say it's not (other than country of origin).
A search didn't help.
Thanks all.

I have some Winchester Q3131, Q3131a, and some PMC 223a. What should I keep for SHTF, and what should I use for practice ammo, or is there not really any meaningful difference between them?

Troy - The PMC boxes don't have a date. Is there another way I can tell when they were made? The box has "PMC Ammunition, 223 REM, 55Gr FMJ-BT, Mod 223A, Made in R.O. Korea". Does this sound like 223 specific ammo, as opposed to M193 spec? If it's not M193, then I'll probably use it first before the 3131/3131a. TIA!

Did you check the flaps where you open the box?

I fired Winchester Q3131A this weekend for the first time (bought 1000 rounds from Wholesalehuneter for $175 delivered) and all I have to say is DAMN! This shit is hot! Good groups but the muzzle flash was off the charts. It definately got my attention and the attention of the shooters around me. The Malaysian, South African and Portugese M193 barely even registered a flash but the Q3131A and Federal XM193 were awesome.

I have shot the Q3131 All the time. I still have some on hand thats collecting dust. As long if the Q3131 was stored right I would buy it! I still think the Q3131 is just a few FPS Faster than Q3131A/IMI!
