Someone mentioned that Winchester makes 2 types of target ammo, the Q load, and an elusive USA load. They didn't say anything about what they are, but supposedly the way to tell was on the box. The Winchester part number would either start with the 'Q' or a 'USA' marking. The only trouble is, I can't verify it, since I never saw a 'USA' part number except on the value pack.ol1911 said:I'm curious - I purchased a 100rd box from wally world for $19.97 - was wondering are these the same run as the regular Q series? Thanks.
Just my .02. Sounded like a fun experiment, so I bought a value pack and a full priced box of 50 and compared them. At least in my test case, they looked identical and shot identical. Same amount of residue, same recoil, so I assume they had the same load. The spent cases looked to be the same brass (thickness and color wise).ol1911 said:I was told that the "vaule pack" 45auto is not the same as the "Q" series 50 pack.
Something about the case its loaded in is different. There is more of a "hitch" on the "value pack" cases. The "Q" series has a smoother case...and for 1911's that are finiky - you should use the regular 50 pack boxes.
does this make sense or was someone playin me....
