You are ranking high in Q cause of a rare combination. I have a person in Hunt surname same situation. End result is if you take a SNP test to verify it. I would have to say you will be a R1b.
Q HG has several other marker that really set it different then what R1b which you have and the person from Hunt surname. I would also bet you have noone else to match.
