So you make a posted warning and don't bother identifying the brand, the bullet, the weight, the box?

Is there any point?

He stated the brand was ZQ1
9mm.

It's some of the "zombie" ammo commonly sold at Wally World in a white box.
He included the lot number, which should be as close as you would get to a serial #.

Okay..

What was the issue? Why are you telling us a manufacturer is replacing a product you're returning, but not telling us why the return in the first place?

It was all in the first post, except the brand of ammo it was.
Including the lot number.

Then he deleted it after two more posts asking what kind of ammo it was.

No, nobody knows anything??

ZQI Lot# 14160105

Signs of overpressure. Blown primer and cratered and flowing primer in two different H&K pistols. A VP9 and a P30. cases were stuck in chamber tying up both pistols.

ZQI contacted and is sending replacement of different lot # and picking up my remaining ammo to evaluate.

Finally!
WalMart sells ZQI ammo in 5.56, 7.62, and 9mm. Nice to eventually get some usable info!

This ammo is loaded to NATO spec and is hot in my experience, but has worked well in any 9mm pistol I've tried it in.

I have a box of the 9mm and I don't see any lot number printed anywhere on it.

The lot number is stamped on the inside of one of the flaps on the box.

I'm looking at the ZQI box under a bright light looking for any trace of a lot number stamped into the cardboard.

There is not a trace, not a hint of an indentation. Nor is it printed anywhere or stamped in ink.

The is no lot number.

The ammo ZQI replaced mine with also has no lot # on it anywhere I can see.

Once again to those who are confused, the 9mm ammo of the above lot # Had blown primers and cratering on other primers and each round had to be removed from chamber bu a hammer and rod due to being stuck.

I removed the info at first due to ZQI asking me to give them a chance. They contacted me and gave the go ahead and I did so. Does this put some salve on certain sore rear ends as to why I did what I did????

Now I'm really confused You stated in two different posts:

The ammo ZQI replaced mine also has no lot # on it anywhere I can see.

Once again to those who are confused, the 9mm ammo of the above lot # Had blown primers and cratering on other primers and each round had to be removed from chamber bu a hammer and rod due to being stuck.


and then:

ZQI Lot# 14160105

Since I've never heard of "ZQI", I guess it's safe to assume that I don't have any of it. (Haven't been real keen on the Turks since the unpleasantness at Gallipoli, you know.)

Turkey is our ally. Joe Biden has a different slant on it.
