Experience with ZQ1 9 mm ammo

I ask on here a while back if anyone tried this ammo in there solo,and no reply.ok my daughter came home on vacation this weekend and she had with her a brand new unaired kimber solo carry,she got it in New Orleans where she lives, so I had 10 boxes of ZQ1 9mm Nate 123 gr we loaded her 3 mags and started shooting! Guess what 300 rounds and flawless.let me tell you about this ammo first of all it is not +p it is just between standard pressure and +p. It's from turkey very consistent and accurate and clean and it's $10.00 for a box of 50 at wal-mart the solo loves it.im on my way to buy a case if they have one,and I'll tell you this I shoot a lot of federal HST 9mm the ZQ1 is nowhere as hot as that just wanted to let everyone no thanks and happy shooting

I guess no one responded to your OP cause if they are like me, I had never heard of that ammo and I don't own a Solo. I do own a couple of .9mm Kimber's so it is good to know about another choice of good cheap/less expensive ammo to check out.
Walmart you say? Last time I checked my local Wallyworld there ammo shelf was still almost empty.

That's a WIN, WIN range trip a perfectly functioning Solo and ammo that is cheap.

Thanks for your report on the ammo...

When I had the Solo, the only ammo that would work in it without a hiccup was Winchester Nato 124gr...

If I had a steady supply of that I believe it would have never went back to Yonkers for a tune up...

Never tried that ammo but I will. My Solo works fine, AK (After Kimber) with anything I've loaded it with, including 115 Gr white box, but mostly Federal 124 and 147.

Since my post that was made at 4:26pm I was doing some research on this new Turkish .9mm ammo. Some things I found are. I didn't count but it seemed to run about 50/50 like and dislike on this product.
Main thing I noticed was the 50 round .9mm price was $21 to $22 dollars not $10.00 as was in the OP. Now there may have been a big price drop, I don't know.
I don't know if it is true but I also saw several reports that Walmart is NO LONGER carrying this ammo. I will look for myself next time I have to go to Wally World.
Lot of people that did like the Turkish ammo said it was more expensive than WWB and American Eagle and a few others.

Several said if it is really rated "NATO" then it is HOT ammo meaning at least +P or close to it.

I am not saying you should or should not use or try it just an FYI for my KT family of what I saw.

EDIT: My bad just checked several Walmart's websites close to me. They show ZQ1 9mm ammo for $10.97 per box BUT you guessed it
"Out of Stock"

That price is about average here in Vegas. My Solo is back east in Kimber land for the third time, I do use a lot of 9MM, I have 7 different
guns in that caliber, so I will look for it on my next quest for ammo. Thanks for the report. I will save some for when the Solo is returned.

Yep, I reread some of the stuff I saw and you are correct it is not +P but the best I can tell it is pretty close to the pressure threshold to be +P.
