    Turkish ZQ MKE Ammo

    Local Wally World has some Turkish made ammo {9mm, 5.56, 7.62} in stock. Brand name is ZQ and manufactured by MKE in Turkey. Is it any good?

    Ours has it too. I have hunted high and low for info about it. NOTHING that amounts to a crap. Just 9 mm shoots a bit on the +P side and a bit dirty.... 5.56 hardly anything said about it. And NOTHING (hands on) said on the NATO 7.62X51. Their Website says 55,130 CUP, 149gr bullet, 2713fps at 78'... and you can't get anyone on the phone.

    Kind of puts a flag up when ALL the name brand 308 - 7.62X51 ammo (is catch as catch can if your timing is right) are there but, the ZQ1 boxes are still/just sitting there un-touched collecting dust ??? I could handle "so-so" for shooting if the brass was worth reloading and the bullets weren't barrel "killers".

    Any help ?

    I tried some of the 5.56 recently with good results. The projectiles themselves have a longer ogive, and come to a noticeably sharper point than the standard Federal or Lake City stuff. I was able to get about 1.5 - 2 moa out of a bcm 16" middy, no chronograph though. I have not tried to reload the brass yet, but it appears to be annealed with crimped and sealed primers.

    Thanks. Every little bit helps. The ZQ1 5.56 sells here,but is usually the last to go. The 7.62 has annealed brass and crimped sealed primers were a plus (to me) too. Non magnetic was another plus.

    I talked to the regular guy that works the hunting/fishing gear section today (that actually likes his job and isn't a big BSer when it comes down to talkin' shop). He said that the ZQ1 is new (on the shelf), the last to go and IS a very slow mover off the shelf. 2 or 3 different people do buy it (7.62) on a regular basis and he thought one might be reloading the brass (he'd ask next time he saw him). Also said no one was bragging about how well it shot compaired to the other factory rounds,but it'd drop a Coyote or Woodchuck in 100 yards.

    I just ran 90 rounds of this stuff today while breaking in a new BCM upper. No issues and will buy more next time I'm at Wally World and they are out of Tula again.

    Looks like quality NATO ammo to me and the brass was annealed so it should make for good reloads.

    That makes me feel a little better. I grabbed 24 (of the 30-20 round boxes) they had left. 24 ? 12 boxes fit perfect in those small Plano ammo boxes. so I filled two.

    For anyone that might care. Walmart (here) did a roll-back on the ZQ1 ammo. Still haven't heard anything good or bad about it.
