I've only shot about 80rnds, no issues, but not much of it down the pipe either. Sorry!

Have about 1000 rounds of it down the pipe of my carbine, no issues other than that it is not as hot as XM193. Coincidentally, I bought all 8 boxes that my local Wally World had on the way home last night.

Good stuff for training/plinking. About the cheapest stuff we can get in small quantities.

They always have this for this price. It's not Q3131, its the lighter commercial 55gr FMJ, and it is about $0.21 per round out the door. Not bad for small quantity... but nothing special.

Thanks for the info guys. The two weights I saw were 45 and 55 grain boxes and both were the same price. Just never saw the 55gr before yesterday.

Normally the 45gr is arouns $14/40. Those are high quality, accurate varmint rounds. The 55gr that is more expensive is typically soft points. The cheap stuff is FMJ.

Wow then maybe that store had it mis-marked because they were both for 7 bucks and change.

I'll bet then they scanned the barcode on that 45gr stuff, it would ring up correctly, however.
