    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.

    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.
