I just bought some Winchester .223 at Sports Authority for $3.20/box of 20. It's 55gr FMJ. Has anyone had experience with this ammo?
I have not shot it yet, but the price was hard to pass up...

It's good stuff, and very accurate out of my rifle. Good for range work, but it's not as hot as M193. The brass is really pretty and nice for reloading too.

Is this stuff similar to Q3131?

Similar, yes, but not the same. USA223R1 is .223 SAAMI spec, Q3131 is 5.56 and M193 spec. USA223R1 is a weaker load than Q3131.
