Absolutely, the BATFE is trying to get rid of any type of ammunition that they consider armor piercing. Our cheap surplus ammo just happens to be steel core so it could be considered AP. They did it with the 5.45x39, now they are working on 5.56. I am sure it's only a matter of time for our steel core surplus, if they are able to push threw the ban on m885 and ss109 5.556 rounds.

It is a ridiculous thing to ban any ammo, a standard round will penetraite body armor...just the government getting too big for their on darn pants...

Well the good news is that they are pulling the proposed ban on 5.56 light ball ammo.

Petition to reverse the ban. I don't own an ak74 but I signed.

It appears they ; (the Feds) have backed off all together. "We the People" still have some voice , and there is so much of the green-tip already out there , they can't make a criminal out of every single person with it . They'd be arresting half the AR shooters in the country . And that be a whole lot of folks .

Be vigilant , Be aware , and don't turn your back on "this" administration for one second , because they will keep trying .
