Default Zqi ammo reloading?

Just picked up some zqi ammo or zq1 which ever it is. I noticed the primers are crimped. Dose anyone have exp reloading this ammo? Dose the crimping cause a problem with reloading?

crimps need to be removed before re-priming. there are a number of different tools for crimp removal.

i use the dillon super swage 600.

I've picked up 600 rounds since it's 30 rounds for $9.97 at my Walmart. I think the price is going up to $13.88, that's what's marked on the shelf but it rings up at the lower price for now. It is NATO 5.56 x 45 mm SS109, 62 grain made by MKEK or MKE of Turkey which has an excellent reputation. Haven't shot it but I'll take a chance, it looks well made.

Some of the reviews iv been seeing say it's a good alternative to m855. Not quite as good but not much worse. And for the price you can't beat it.

Yeah, 33 cents a round for decent 5.56 isn't bad these days.

$13.88 is pretty expensive considering the case price has gone down to $300 to $350 oer 1000 for brass cased 223 and 556 online. $10/30 Isn't too bad.
