I need some SHTF ammo and wondered if this stuff from KY is any good. The price isn't bad and shipping would be fairly cheap for my location. Anybody have any?

IIRC, at least some of the '99 Q3131A was loaded very hot. Some causing damage to rifles. This is from memory, so I may be wrong...

TigerStripe:

I think you're recalling the problems noted about 1999 Q3131 which was raised in late 1999 and early 2000. In fact, the trouble with Q3131 was why many folks began asking specifically for Q3131A made in Israel. I've shot a great deal of Q3131A from 1999. In fact, I have a case of lot no. PF 20 and two cases of lot No. PF 70 from that year. I've shot a case of each of those lot numbers and they are fantastic. I highly recommend Q3131A from 1999, but not Q3131 from that same year.

FWIW

I have some of the 1999 lot that is hot! I forgot the lot numbet Im guessing PCF 22 I dont know?

It is Hot but my primers look okay !

so I kept a few Bandoliers of the 99!

I even called winchester in 2001 about this. But they told me there was no call back??

ITS ALL BULLSHIT ( about the specs being not the same) Just incase you read me wrong Forest

As far as Q3131 or Q3131A or Q3131 2005/06

Its the same specs according to Winchester! and very good ammo! almost as good as WOLF M193

Im glad it made in the USA !!! (support americans)

Though IMI is good stuff I even have a couple Bando`s

I think you're writting about PF 22. It was good stuff. I shot a case of it in 2001. Excellent in both accuracy and function. And yes, it is hot but not over pressured.

FWIW
