Turkish 5.56 at Walmart

I bumped into this 720 round box, rather unusual packaging for Walmart.

And very overpriced for 720rds. You can find 1000rds of PMC X-TAC online for less than $400 these days.

I wonder if the 5.56x45mm ammo in the Turkish made can (ammo box) is actually Turkish made?

Produced by MKE (Makina ve Kimya Endustrisi, Kurumu, Turkey)?

Where did I see a thread on these and the ammo lot number was also “MKE”?

Apparently this is a MKE product, see: forums.gunsandammo.com/showthrea … 7-MKE-ammo.

Brand name ZQ1 ammunition. The headstamp (shown in the first thread listed above) is: MKE 13, centered on the 6:00 position and with a green primer annulus.

If anyone locates any of the Turkish / MKE h/s 5.56 please let me know. I’d be willing to pay a fair mark-up and shipping for a few loose rounds or a box if possible. Just an up date… I’m not interested in American Tactical boxes, just the items that is turning up at WalMart and shown in the pics.

This MKE ammunition was discussed here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=13725

The importer’s trademark is in fact “ZQI” and stands for Zenith Quest International, Charlotesville, VA. More information, pictures and brochures can be found in their two different websites.
