Thumbs down Cheap is cheap

Reviews are not kind ! I'd stick with something proven. Lots of new ammo out the last few years. Much of it is OK but not really great. IMO.

I've never had my hands on a box of this brand to see what they say about it. Like who and where it is made.. There web site don't say much.. And a couple forums have little to say it seems... Like said, no glowing reports about it..

I guess my thinking on it is many places are producing a "ball" grade ammo, regardless of the projectile used so that it is more price competitive than "match" or "premium" ammo would be...

For instance.... If I were only going to shoot/hunt out to 200 yards, I'm not inclined to spend the money for 1000 yard capable ammo for everyday use... KnowwhatImean.. But then, I'm kinda cheap anyhow..

My 2 cents.. Good luck...

"guaranteed 1 inch groups" ???

How many shots in the group? At what range? Using what firearm?

I "guarantee" no one, including myself, using ANY ammo, can consistently put 3 shots consecutive shots in a 1 inch group at 100 yards using my old .308. Something sounds awfully fishy about an ammo company that "guarantees" 1 inch groups.

And "affordable" you say? Not in my book. I can load .308 ammo for less than half the 50 cents per round you pointed out in your OP. Obviously so can you, or why else would you be concerned whether or not the ammo had reloadable cases?

I cannot find what the jacket is made of, to say that it is copper would be an assumption because the company has not said or printed anywhere that I have seen that it is a copper jacket, I wonder if it is made of something like zinc.

Turkish ammo by the way. MOA guarantee.

I'm too busy these days to get out back & let a few loose, to see where they go. Hope someone beats me to it.

I tested a box from Walmart in my Remington 783 in 308. The ZQ1 ammo did not perform as well as my local ammo shop's bulk reloads.

So thumbs down from me.
